Imagine 45 multi-ethnic adolescents coming from a district lying in the shadow of five federal housing projects and having a disproportionate amount of poverty, crime, and new immigrants with language challenges. Now imagine these adolescents rehearsing after school in the Farrington High School auditorium, home to the largest inner-city student body in Hawaii. This is the T-shirt Theatre of Kalihi founded by the Alliance for Drama Education, and they have been practicing diligently on their new play, Langston who?, a celebration of Langston Hughes' work, life, times, poetry, song and rap.
There will be two free public performances this Friday, October 30th at 7:30 and Sunday, November 1st at 4:30 at Farrington High School Auditorium, 1564 North King Street. Go check them out, support them, and be blown away by these kids from Kalihi .
