Wahi­awa-based Troupe Mounts Play At Pa­liku

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

Di­a­mond in the Rough Pro­duc­tions will present Alice in Won­der­land March 27-29 at Pa­liku Theatre, fea­tur­ing nearly 50 youths is­land­wide, in­clud­ing Sky­lar San­tana of Ka­neohe.

It was easy to choose San­tana at the try­outs, ac­cord­ing to direc­tor Kristi Kashimoto-Row­bot­tom. “Sky­lar is only 7 years old, yet was out­stand­ing in her au­di­tion, so was NOT cast in the ‘baby’ en­sem­ble,” she said. “She is play­ing a va­ri­ety of roles, in­clud­ing a fea­tured dancer, and is keep­ing up with the teens and adults around her!”

Kashimoto-Row­bot­tom, who also op­er­ates Ap­plause! Per­for­mance Academy in Wahi­awa, prom­ises that the play will de­liver “a pseudo-steam­punk ver­sion of Won­der­land, and fun for the whole fam­ily.” The cur­tain goes up at 7:30 p.m. March 27, 2 and 7:30 p.m. March 28 and 2 p.m. March 29.

The clas­sic mu­si­cal also of­fers a spe­cial per­for­mance for school groups March 27, if there is enough in­ter­est. For de­tails, email ditrdi­rec­tor@ya­hoo.com.
