For Immediate Release

HAUNT! spooks UH Hilo

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center features the UH Hilo Acting Troupe in HAUNT!, ghost stories from around the world, on Thursday and Friday, April 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, April 14 at 2 p.m. in the PAC.

“The Troupe begins with an exorcism at Waipi’o Valley and ends with what might just be Pele disappearing from a car in a ride on the Hamakua Coast,” said Director Jackie Pualani Johnson. “In between, the raconteurs will perform eerie tales from Japan, China, Iraq, Germany, England, and Mexico. The stories, recommended for audiences nine years old and older, are staged to terrify in one moment and generate giggles in the next!”

Actors include Performing Arts majors Karla Ahn, Willyam Hodson, Alyssa Lassiter, Peter Veseskis, and Denyse Woo-Ockerman, who are joined by graduates Rob Hunt and Angela Nakamura. Blesson Allen, a political science major, auditioned and landed roles in the Troupe along with community actors Joyce Alcouloumre, Wolf Daniel Braun, Tyler Gee, Joann Hale, and Dickie Motherwell. Geoff Staton is assistant director and Apollo Harris is technical director.

Tickets are reserved seating and priced at $12 General, $7 Discount and $5 UH Hilo/HawCC students and children up to age 17, and are available by calling the UH Hilo Box Office at 974-7310 or ordering online at artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu.
