The Pacific Okinawa Players announce their upcoming youth production Harmony High, a high-energy musical for the whole family which runs February 19th-28th at the Camp Foster Community Center Auditorium.

Harmony High boasts clever original songs, zany antics, and a creative script for a truly spectacular show that will have everyone singing, including the audience! Written by John Jacobson and Mac Huff, this cast of kids can't get enough of this "way out" school where everybody sings and everything's cool! Follow new students Michael, Michele, and JR as they sing their way through their first day at Harmony High!

Harmony High is the 10th POPs show directed by Christine Smith. Recent  productions she’s directed include last year’s Disney’s Peter Pan Jr., Disney’s Aristocats Jr., and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  Harmony High features choreography by Susan Parda-Watters, whose past work includes You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, and Disney’s Peter Pan Jr., and musical direction by Melanie Bales. The cast boasts 34 youths ages 9 to 17 including Colin Lundberg as Michael, Ellie Dolan as Michelle, Lindsay Dolan as JR, and Tori Pickens as Principal Smith.

The Pacific Okinawa Players, often called “POPs” for short, is a non-profit community theater organization committed to providing quality live theater experiences to all SOFA members, both in the audience and on stage.  Christine Smith explains, “Directing a children’s show is doubly rewarding, as it allows POPs to showcase the talents of our junior cast members, while also exposing the military affiliated children and their families in the audience to live theater.”

POPs currently produces two adult shows and one youth show per year.
 
Harmony High will run February 19th-28th, with evening performances on Fridays and Saturdays and matinee performances on Saturdays and Sundays.  All performances will be held at the Camp Foster Community Center Auditorium. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. Children under 3 receive free admission.
