We're pretty excited about our upcoming show as part of HIVE. If you've been to HIVE 1 or 2, you know this event is not to be missed.

The character of Sala in After the Quake is played by Leina Dueck, who is 10. What does she think about her role in the show?

"It was great to be acting with my mom!  All the adults were so kind and funny!! I enjoyed it a lot."
"I enjoyed creating my character, Sala and playing her.  But I don't like screaming every night.......I don't want to hurt the audience's ears!"
For more about Leina and her work in the show, check out this interview in the North Shore News with Leina and her mom, Manami Hara, who plays Sayoko in the show.

Check out what people are saying about After the Quake:

“I hadn’t been to a play in a really long time. As in I can’t even remember the last time I saw living, breathing actors on stage in front of me instead of projected, cold onto a screen.

Jake Tobin Garrett, BeyondRobson.com
