Leeward Community College’s Theatre and Drama Program joins forces with local performance troupe Monkey Waterfall to produce the site-specific work Celebrity Project to examine the subject of - what else? - celebrity.

Shows are set for 8 p.m. April 8-10 in LCC Theatre; however, performers and audience will move throughout the campus for a different perspective on performance and the spaces in which they occur.Audience members are encouraged to wear shoes suitable for crossing grassy areas and will receive a tour map to guide them through the action.


 

Co-directed by Monkey Waterfall co-artistic director Yukie Shiroma and LCC drama program director Paul Cravath, the show hits upon the questions: Who or what defines celebrity? What makes us want to be famous? How has the definition of celebrity changed? What can we learn about the consequences of fame?

The cast consists of West Oahu residents Anthony Czumalowski, John Loo and Misa Tupou (Pearl City); Kaylen Defan and Anthony Feliciano (Ewa Beach); Niko Lannon (Kapolei); Joe Flint, Jena Roman, Michael Donato and Shiroma (Aiea); and Casey Thornton (Waipahu), among others, who utilize body language, mask work, humor and dance to demonstrate how we are influenced and enabled by fame.


Tickets cost $15 for adults, $10 for students, seniors and military, and $8 for keiki under 12. For details, call 455-0385, 483-7123 or visit tp://LCCTheatre.hawaii.edu.
