HTC Education & PAPA presents - JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH

This local youth performance is the culmination of their spring theatre education program, performed LIVE, on stage at the Hawaii Theatre, under the instruction and direction of J.P. Tai and the talented drama education professionals at the Pacific Academy of Performing Arts (PAPA). Student Matinee performances on Jan. 30 & 31 and Feb. 1, are geared toward school groups, and make for excellent field trips. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach... and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach – among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities – but, after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.

HTC Education & PAPA presents - DISNEY'S THE LITTLE MERMAID

This local youth performance is the culmination of their summer intensive theatre education program, performed LIVE, on stage at the Hawaii Theatre, under the instruction and direction of J.P. Tai and the talented drama education professionals at the Pacific Academy of Performing Arts (PAPA). Student Matinee performances on Jan. 30 & 31 and Feb. 1, are geared toward school groups, and make for excellent field trips. Beautiful mermaid Ariel should be a happy girl -- she lives in an enchanted undersea country, her father is a King, and she has the most beautiful singing voice. But she is a passionate, headstrong teenager, and wants what she cannot have -- to live on land. When she falls in love with a handsome human prince, Ariel is more determined than ever to gain a pair of legs. But her only option is to defy her furious father, and bargain with Ursula the Sea Witch, giving her voice as the price of entry onto dry land. With the help of Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull, and officious court composer Sebastian the crab, Ariel must wordlessly gain Prince Eric's love within three days -- or lose her soul to the ambitious witch! Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, and the wildly popular Disney film, this musical staging of The Little Mermaidfeatures a funny and fanciful book by Doug Wright, with the beloved score by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Glenn Slater in an expanded but completely faithful form, featuring the rambunctious and persuasive “Under the Sea,” the romantic expectation of “Kiss the Girl,” and that anthem to longing and belonging, “Part of Your World.”
