The Volcano School of Arts and Sciences MIddle School invites family and friends for an evening of fun and laughter at Spring Theater Night on Thursday, May 11, at 6 p.m. at Kīlauea Military Camp’s Kīlauea Theater.

Under the direction of Suzi Bond, students from the school’s sixth, seventh and eighth grade classes will each perform. There will be a special musical number, “One Day,” presented by fifth graders directed by Hal Treddenick.  

The eighth grade class will present “The Capricious Pearls” by Virginia Kidd, a slapstick comedy following a gang set on retrieving a valuable string of pearls. The fun ensues when the gang’s map leads them to a vacant house inhabited by a bunch of elderly ladies.

The seventh grade students will present “Red vs. The Wolf” by Judy Wolfman. This retake on the classic “Red Riding Hood” story reframes the narrative from the wolf’s point of view. The wolf is intent on telling the story of what really happened–the true nature of Red Riding Hood and his own good intentions.

Sixth-graders will perform “Action News: Now With 10% More Action!” by Johnathan Rand. Lead anchors Babs Buttlebee and Jim Pickles will lead the audience through the evening’s top stories in this humorous take on broadcast media.
