Calvary Chapel Lihue is presenting a musical drama and invites the community to enjoy “Hope Station,” an original script.
The setting is Christmas Eve at a Train Station in New York, during World War II. After getting trapped by an avalanche, the passengers discover that everyone has a story.
Characters include: the train station manager, a reverend on his way to New York City to deliver an important sermon, a young runaway planning to make it big as an actress on Broadway, a wounded solider returning from war, a pregnant Jewish woman who recently escaped Poland to start a new life, and a wealthy woman who’s been living her high society dreams, but still searching for real love, along with a supporting cast.
The director and playing the role of the reverend is Lance Kerwin, an actor known primarily for roles during his childhood and teen years in the 1970s. He played the starring role in the TV series “James at 15” and the made-for-TV film, “The Loneliest Runner.”
One of the co-writers and actress playing the role of Lady Ann Rockefeller is Sophia Ross, who starred as the Baroness in our previous drama, “Candle in the Window.” Newcomers to CCL Theatre are two experienced actresses; playing the role of Viola is Jennifer Plunkett, and playing Maria is Jessie Pyron.
There will be four performances: Tonight and Saturday, Friday, Dec. 16, and Saturday, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m. at Calvary Chapel Lihue, 3-3100 Kuhio Highway across from the McDonald’s in Lihue.
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and the open seating is limited each night. Tickets are available for donation of $5 each and are available at the Word4word Resource Center, the Bandwagon Music Center, Scotty’s Music in Lihue, and Kauai Music & Sound in Kapaa.
Proceeds go to support three ministries on Kauai and reaching around the world: U-Turn for Christ Kauai, Camp Agape Kauai, and Samaritan’s Purse International.
