CAPA freshmen present Hollywood Nights May 19
The annual Hollywood Nights production returns to the stage of Auburn’s Freshman Campus (AFC) at 520 N. Pierpont at 7 p.m., Thursday, May 19.
This year’s theme is “Around the World with Mario Brothers,” and will showcase the dance, theater, visual art and vocal talent of the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) freshman students.
Under the direction of Lou Ann Alberts, AFC’s Technical Theatre students will unveil their multi-level castle set, which will be the location for a script of accents and adventure, with song and dance of African, American, Eastern Indian and Irish cultures.
The show will also pay tribute to the victims of recent disasters in Haiti and Japan. In addition to the student performances, AFC staff will sport Hawaiian costumes and present a special hula dance, and several arts students will be honored on stage with the CAPA Shining Star Award, voted on by peers and teachers in the perspective arts areas.
General admission is $5 (pre-school children are free), with a portion of the proceeds going to an AFC family that recently lost their home to fire. For more information, contact Lou Ann Alberts at Auburn’s Freshman Campus at (815) 490-4712.
