Ka Makani Theatre presents “Metamorphoses” performances at HPA


WAIMEA, Island of Hawaii—Ka Makani Theatre at Hawaii Preparatory Academy presents Metamorphoses, Mary Zimmerman’s award-winning play based on Ovid’s poem, The Metamorphoses, an account of Greek mythology. Performances are at 7 p.m. February 25-27 at the school’s Gates Performing Arts Center. Tickets, which only are available at the door, are $10 for adults and $5 for students.

Metamorphoses, which is set in and around a large pool of water onstage, is a series of short stories that incorporate Greek mythology with the universal themes of transition, loss, and love. The play is geared toward older students and adults; some material, as well as the tone of the play, might not be appropriate for elementary-age students.

Metamorphoses was nominated for the 2002 Tony Award and received the 2002 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play. Zimmerman won a Tony Award for her direction of the play. The off-Broadway production opened a few weeks after 9/11, giving the play’s themes an even greater collective significance.

Ka Makani Theatre’s production is directed by Sheryl Goodspeed, with music by Marina Tichotsky. Jared Terpak is the set and lighting designer and costumes are by Lolly Davis. Glen Morphus of Pacific Lining Systems built the pool.

The cast features: Katie Boehm, Kara Erickson, Alyssa Evans, Ruby Fink, Gabi Geiger, Linnea Gregg, Makoa Johnson, Teddy Lederer, Logan Martin, Aaron Nishina, Kawaiola Peck, Tomi Peebles, Nick Purdy, Hiipua Rapozo, Lauren Richards, Delaney Ross, Daniel Shams, Sierra Shumate, Angie Shumov, Leah Smith, and Julia Varboncoeur.
