27th Annual Side Shows: A Festival of One-Act Plays

Seabury Hall’s Performing Arts program will end its season with its 27th Annual Side Shows: A Festival of One-Act Plays. The first night was last night, but you can still catch it on Friday, May 19 at 7 pm at the ʻAʻaliʻikūhonua Creative Arts Center. This year’s festival will include a wild array of six, 10-minute plays. Five of the plays are student-written: In Saying Goodbye by first-year student Ren Cooper, a girl comes to terms with the loss of a friend. In We’re Not Fish, by senior Kristian Lloyd Roque, two friends reconnect on a busy New York street. Sophomore Elizabeth Hampe’s play explores what AI might want from its human employees in That’s All, and alumna Lacey Flammer’s piece has the Girls’ Basketball team go on an adventure in Molokai Hot Bread. Another alumna, Sydney Roberts’,crazy Nomad, will round out the festival lineup. The evening will end with a short musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) called 21 Chump Street, which is about peer pressure in a high school setting.
