“The Diviners” Opens at Seabury Hall
By Maui Now Staff
This Friday, Feb. 28, Seabury Hall Performing Arts presents Jim Leonard’s The Diviners, directed by Sally Sefton.
This “theatrical and poetic small town tale” is set in 1930s Indiana.
Kaimana Neil plays the disturbed boy who can find water with a divining rod, while Zeb Mehring, as a lapsed preacher, tries to help him get over his fear of, well, water. Mehring is assisted in this task by the boy’s sister (Zoe Harrelson-Louie) and father (Kalan Birnie).
Live folk and bluegrass musicians Alan Hodara and Frank Kane will accompany the town’s Gospel-singing farmers, merchants, and busybodies. The townsfolk are played by Kathryn Adler, Celina Bekins, Sabrina Futch, Noa Herrera, Kai Iinuma-Nakaaki, Makena Jost, and Mikela Wesson.
Vanessa Cerrito returns to Seabury to design the period costumes and Todd Van Amburgh has designed the intimate, three-quarter round thrust setting.
The show starts at 7 p.m. and will also be performed Mar. 1, 7, and 8 at the same time and on Sunday, Mar. 9 at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and $5 for students.
