Western’s upcoming theater production, Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls by Naomi Iizuka, promises to be the most entertaining event of the semester. A delightful play about relationships, love, and friends as different lives collide in New York, Alaska, and Hawaii. This hilarious plot also involves one wild dog, a komodo dragon and several hula dancers.
This is not a production for the kids, as it contains some mature content and adult themes. Dates and show times are March 4-6. March 10-11, with the performance starting at 7:30 every night except March 10, which will start at 8:30 p.m. as part of Western’s Responsible Alcohol Partnership alternative event programming. This performance will have ticket deals for students so stay tuned.
Ticket prices for the other performances will be $5 for students and $8 for general admission.
