‘Voice of the Prairie’ visits a bygone era

November 1, 2012
By MICHAEL PULLIAM (mauibackstage@gmail.com) , For The Maui News

Halloween festivities, a jam packed weekend of entertainment and a tsunami? No worries, the shows must go on. The mad panic for gas and toilet paper certainly did not affect attendance at the bevy of last weekend's entertainment events. Seabury Hall opened its first ever student show of the year at the awe inspiring A'ali'ikuhonua Creative Arts Center this weekend with "Voice of the Prairie," John Olive's brilliant and poignant slice of Americana. When you combine the facility with the exceptional artistic design by Todd Van Amburgh (featuring antique radios and phonographs by Jeremy Baldwin) and wonderful costumes by Andre Morissette it's easy to forget you're watching high school theater. At the same time it is unfair to place that same level of expectation on young high school actors.
