La Pietra – Hawaii School for Girls presents “Up The Down Staircase” written by Bel Kaufman on Friday, April 25 and Saturday, April 26 at 7 pm in the Barbie Gymnasium on the La Pietra campus.
Set in an inner city high school, “Up The Down Staircase” is the story of a novice teacher who is faced with unruly students and an administration that dampens the teacher's spirits. The teacher slowly gains the students' respect as she attempts to make a difference in their lives. The production, directed by Annie Renick, consists of 22 La Pietra students’ grades 7 through 12.
Tickets are $5 for students with identification and $7 for general seating. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door. For more information, call 808-922-2744.
