THURSDAY   MAY  25    (5 PM)

 

FRIDAY & SUNDAY  MAY 26 & 28   (7 PM)

The Boss Baby

DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks' The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.

Life

Life tells the story of the six-member crew of the International Space Station that is on the cutting edge of one of the most important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As the crew begins to conduct research, their methods end up having unintended consequences and the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.

 

Kenneth Turan  L.A. Times:  "It is undeniably satisfying to be in the hands of a persuasive director who, along with editors Frances Parker and Mary Jo Markey, knows how to slowly ratchet up the tension to a properly unnerving level."

 

James Berardinelli  Reel Views:  "Those who have seen Alien will have a pretty good idea what's coming, at least to a point. Once things reach that point, however, all bets are off."

ONE MAN THEATRE:   THE TRUMP CARD

SUNDAY    JUNE 18    (2 PM)                Tickets  $10

TCard


What is the lowdown on Donald Trump? Who are the people and what are the forces that shaped him? Playwright Mike Daisey explains our 45th president in this edgy, funny, and disturbing one-man show, The Trump Card. The performance is not a comedy impersonation, rather a raw and intriguing story that gets to the roots of Donald Trump’s personality and motivations. Performed throughout the country, this is the first time the show will be staged in Hawaii. John Sucke, long-time actor and Waimea resident, has adapted the script and performs the show. “I learned more about why Trump acts the way he does from this play than from all the news stories I’ve read and watched. That’s why I wanted to bring the show here,” says Sucke.  Get ready for 90 minutes of unforgettable political theater.
 
Not to be missed: American playwright Mike Daisey created this edgy, funny, disburbing one-man show BEFORE the 2016 election and presented it throughout the country to rave reviews. Now, long-time Waimea actor John Sucke is working with a hui of Hawaii Island resisters to adapt the script (shorten it) to perform here on Hawai'i Island. The show is not a comedy imprsonation, rather, a raw and intriguing story that gets to the roots of Donald Trump's personality and motivations. It's Rated R-17 for Rage and Unfiltered Language, and is not family friendly.

RAVE REVIEWS:
Curtain Up: "So funny you'll want to cry."

DC Metro Theatre Arts: "THE TRUMP CARD" soars above the legion of lessser think pieces that this crazy election has spawned. For those of you desperate for an explanation of shy, why?!...THE TRUMP CARD is hysterical, uncomfortable, and soering. In other words, it is the perfect reflection of the 2016 presidential contest."

Hawai'i Island Producer: Matt Binder (989-9693)
Sponsored by: North Hawaii Action Network

Tickets: $10  Tickets will also be sold at the door as space permits. Honokaa People's Theatre June 18 2pm.

The play also will be presented at 7 p.m., Fri. & Sat., June 9-10, 2017 at Aloha Theatre in Kona - sponsored by Matriarchy Rising.

Students will learn attacks, escapes, acrobatics, strength and conditioning, music instruments, songs in Brazilian-Portuguese, history and self-confidence. Classes are geared for beginners and taught by Mario “Castanho” Hill, an 11-yr. practitioner of capoeira with United Capoeira Association.

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)   JUNE 11

 

Come and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event by DJ Rajasick.

Ecstatic Dance is a place to dance “from the inside out” and connect with like-minded people of all ages in a safe and non-judgmental space. Given the large amount of people that may show up to the event and the nature of our free-form movement, for liability purposes this dance is open to anyone aged 13 years or older only.

In its most basic definition it is free-form movement/dance inspired by music, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the grace or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance as if nobody is watching! It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation that develops a direct body-spirit connection. Let your body and inner guide be your teachers.

No dance experience or partner is necessary. It's a perfect outlet for those who think they can't dance and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is also not a social dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and really push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines:
1. Move however you wish.
2. No talking on the dance floor or altar - low whispers off the floor please.
3. No shoes on the dance floor.
4. Water breaks to be taken off the dance floor.
