Magic Conch Shell In­spires Reen­act­ment Of Tra­di­tional Tale

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

Hawai­ian myth comes to the Wind­ward stage with The Mag­i­cal Pu Stealer, open­ing this week­end at Pa­liku Theatre.

The cur­tain goes up at 7: 30 p. m. Thurs­day through Satur­day and Feb. 19-21, and at 4:30 p.m. Sun­day and Feb. 22.

Writ­ten and di­rected by Bishop Mu­seum cul­tural ed­u­ca­tor and noted sto­ry­teller Moses Goods, the play stars the stu­dents of Wind­ward Com­mu­nity Col­lege’s Theatre 260 class, who will retell the tra­di­tional mo‘ olelo of Pua­puale­nalena, a shapeshift­ing dog who protects Waipi‘o Val­ley.

“With so many stu­dents of Hawai­ian an­ces­try on our cam­pus, it seems nat­u­ral that our youth theatre of­fer­ings should bring mo‘olelo to the stage,” stated WCC theatre in­struc­tor Ni­co­las Logue.

“It’s im­por­tant for young peo­ple to see their own cul­ture on stage and watch drama­ti­za­tions of th­ese sto­ries.”

Tick­ets cost $15 gen­eral, and $10 for stu­dents, se­niors, mil­i­tary and chil­dren. Call 235- 7310 or visit wind­ward.hawaii.edu/pa­liku.
