Kumu Kahua Theatre Holds an Audition Workshop and Auditions for the World Premiere of Demigods Anonymous by Noa Helela

Donna Blanchard

WHAT:  Workshop and Auditions for Demigods Anonymous by Noa Helela

WHERE: Kumu Kahua Theatre, 46 Merchant Street

WHEN: WORKSHOP: 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Wednesday January 31, 2018        

AUDITIONS: 4:30-6:30 pm Saturday February 3, 2018; 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Sunday February 4, 2018.

INFO: 536-4222, kumukahua.org and kumukahuatheatreom@gmail.com

Open auditions will be held to cast the world premiere of Noa Helela’s absurd comedy, Demigods Anonymous.  The show will be directed by Harry Wong III and runs March 22-April 22, 2018.

Power is both a curse and a gift.  As a modern demigod, Noe takes college courses, parties with her friends, and tries to stop herself from turning into a giant lizard.  Her friend, Marcella, is dealing with her unwanted tendency to become a mountain lion; Blaine transforms into a shark when aggravated.  These contemporary Kupua are like most people in their 20s... except for their ability to manifest ancient demigod powers and transform into animals...

There will be a free audition workshop held from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Wednesday January 31, 2018, also at Kumu Kahua Theatre.  This optional workshop is an opportunity for all interested to work with the script and director, learn the best way to prepare for this audition and hone your audition skills.

The workshop is free, but space is limited.  Please call 536-4222 or email kumukahuatheatreom@gmail.com to reserve your spot.
