Guam - John F. Kennedy High School students will showcase the fruits of their labor beginning tonight and this weekend with their latest production, "Long Live the King". Co-directors Niel Romero and Justin Baldovino wrote the play, which is based on Disney characters.
"It's a story about facing adult hood and not losing your childhood," said Romero. "There's a teenager named sky and he's faced with all the troubles of adulthood and so what happens in Fantasia, the world where all the Disney characters are, basically he learns how to be a kid again."
Prior to Long Live the King, JFK's Element Academy will showcase their dancing talents with a special 30-minute performance. Choreographer John Quilantang told KUAM News, "Element Academy showcases the importance of friendship through the art of dancing and these are the leaders of element academy and they've worked out and it's going to be a really good show!"
You can catch Element Academy and the JFK production of Long Live the King tonight at 7pm at the Tiyan GATE Theater. There are also two shows on Saturday, one at noon and another at 7pm. The final show will be held on 4pm on Sunday afternoon.
Tickets are $10 for students and $12 for the general public.
