A cast of fifty performing arts majors and graduates join other UH Hilo students and community performers in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Evita. The production is the life story of Eva Peron, who rose from poverty to being the First Lady of Argentina during the dynamic 1940s in Buenos Aires. The love and care of her people drove Eva to croon, “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina,” as she succumbed to cancer at age thirty-three.

Evita will run for two weekends at the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center. Performance dates are Friday and Saturday, April 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee performance at 2:00 p.m. on April 9th, followed by evening performances on Wednesday through Saturday, April 12 through 15.

Tickets can be purchased online at: artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu, or by calling the Performing Arts Center Box Office at 932-7490.

Professors Cheryl Ramos and Linc Gotshalk are recruiting participants until the end of March for their “Let’s Go Walking” study for cancer survivors. This study is being conducted to learn about the benefits of an 8-week walking program on the physical and psychological functioning, and exercise behavior of cancer survivors.

Participants must be at least 18, completed treatment for breast, prostate, or colon-rectal cancer 2 years ago or longer, and be able to engage in moderate physical activity. Surveys and physical assessments will be done before and after the program.

At the end of the 8-week program participants will receive a $20 KTA gift certificate, a pedometer, and a walking log calendar to help them maintain their walking program, and as a “thank you” for taking part in the study.

To learn more about the study and to find out if you are eligible to participate, call 640-2636 or email letsgowalkingsurvivors@gmail.com.
