Island School students take to stage
LIHUE — Thirteen students from Island School will take center stage this week.
The Island School high school Theatre Company will perform “The Last Day of School,” written by Ian McWethy and directed by Peggy Ellenburg, for three performances only.
Opening night is on Friday, and the play will run through Sunday. The Friday and Saturday shows will begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday’s showing will start at 4 p.m.
All three performances will be held at the Island School Main Hall.
The play is described as a comedy with a lot of heart and no regrets.
Students in grades eight through twelve portray high school seniors on their last day of school, before leaving high school forever.
A renegade student takes over the morning announcements and proposes that everyone do something bold, unexpected, brave or stupid.
Through a series of interconnected scenes, misconceptions, grudges and secret crushes come out into the open in hilarious and surprisingly touching ways.
Tickets are $7 at the door or $5 in advance. Tickets are available from cast members or at the school’s front office.
