Tom Lee, creator and accomplished puppeteer of previous season favorites “Shank’s Mare” and “Ko’olau”, returns with another intimate shadow puppet performance. A Tomte is a Swedish gnome, a quiet and unseen caretaker who watches over the lives of humans and animals. On a cold winter night on a snow covered farm, Tomte teaches us about the importance of kindness and looking after living things.

Adapted from “The Tomten” by Astrid Lindgren and the poem by Victor Rydberg, this performance is suitable for all ages and was created using live feed video of shadow puppets filmed through an overhead video camera and projected onto a small shadow screen. Puppetry, animal sounds and scenic transitions are all performed by Tom Lee from behind the screen, with narration by storyteller Lisa Gonzales. Following the shadow portion of the piece, Tomte emerges from the screen to interact with the audience. During this portion, Tomte is presented as a kuruma ningyō (cart puppet) style figure inspired by Japanese traditions.

Be More Chill
Music and Lyrics by Joe Iconic
Book by Joe Tracz
Based on the Novel by Ned Vizzini

Directed by Dr. Rachel Klein

Nominated for a Tony award for Best Original Score in 2019, Be More Chill has “easily relatable characters, clever twists and ebullient songs…from beginning to end” (NJ Arts) that captures and “perfectly balances the tragedy and hilarity of high school” (Tri City News).

Jeremy Heere is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about "The Squip," a tiny supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most: a date with Christine, an invite to the raddest party of the year and a chance to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school. But is being the most popular guy in school worth the risk?

Based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill opened on Broadway in 2019.

UH Hilo Production is co-presented by the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center and the Hilo Community Players and by arrangement with Concord Theatricals. www.concordtheatricals.com
