In the footsteps of our legendary divas Hawaii Tribune-Herald. Sunday, June 1 1 , 200039 The East Hawaii Cultural Center presents Jackie Pualani Johnson in DivaDivine Saturday, June 17, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, June 18, at 2 p.m. Pass my boa, please ... Stars have sung, stormed, stomped, and sobbed on the musical stage for decades, making names for themselves as troopers who knew how to harness their talents and stop a show on its heels. From the resonance of Merman, to the glitz of Channing, or the subtle wit of today's Bernadette Peters, divas of the musical theater have made their mark with smoky torch songs, up-tempo production numbers, and amazing stage presence. DivaDivine is a one-woman show that dances through the lives of renowned ladies of the stage, unveil ing their humanity through their life stones and trademark show tunes. With laughter and a few tears, the stories hidden behind the boas come to life, all the while keeping time to the never-ending pulse of fame. Johnson has been a drama professor at UH-Hilo for 21 years, where she has directed 14 musicals and appeared in five more. Her favorite roles include Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd and Golde in Fiddler on the Roof, along with Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, and crazy Amy in Company. She began singing during her high school years in Hilo under the direction of Clarence Waipa of St. Joseph's High. Popoki and his big adventures Popoki, a spirited Hawaiian cat, did not like rules. He didn't listen to his grandmother. And he got into trouble big trouble. During his visit to the Big Island, Popoki learned that a volcano can be a dangerous place. He also learned that it's scary to be lost, and that sometimes mysterious things happen when you're trying to find your way home. The lushly illustrated book captures the spirit of this spunky little cat as qc tt Hramatip vnlmnir lanH- T bll - 1,1 IV.
