There’s Sto­ries Above In Them Thar Stars

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Sports -

Tales of nymphs and half-di­vine he­roes might seem like child-friendly fare — but to those in the know, the re­al­ity is re­ally quite adult.

“Star-Crossed Lovers,” a Valen­tine’s Day stargazing show to be held at Wind­ward Com­mu­nity Col­lege’s Imag­i­nar­ium at 7 p.m. Fri­day, hopes to share tales of true — and un­cen­sored — love with adult au­di­ences.

Many con­stel­la­tions and ce­les­tial bod­ies get their names from Greek myth and lore. But “( Greek myths) sure aren’t cute lit­tle fairy tales, and they re­ally aren’t ‘kid-friendly,’” stated Krissie Kel­logg, ed­u­ca­tion spe­cial­ist at WCC and host of the stargazing show. Kel­logg nor­mally tones down the risqué sto­ries to keep things ap­pro­pri­ate for gen­eral au­di­ences, so she’s an­tic­i­pat­ing be­ing able to share the “unedited” tales with this au­di­ence.

Tick­ets cost $15 per per­son — a price that in­cludes a glass of wine and a spe­cial fa­vor. The event is open to any­one age 21 and older. Reser­va­tions are re­quired, as no walk-up tick­ets will be sold. Call 235-7433. Or­chids Wind­ward Orchid So­ci­ety has a “Flow­ers of Love” dis­play and plant sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to­day through Sun­day in Wind­ward Mall’s IHOP wing, plus a one- hour or­chids talk at 1 p.m. daily with Sheron Har­wood. Call 235-1143. Kahuku mu­sic The Sa­loon Pi­lots en­ter­tain blue­grass style from 9 p.m. to mid­night at Surfer, The Bar at Turtle Bay Re­sort. Cover is $10, for 21 and older. Call 293-6000.
