Momilani Elementary third graders present Guardians of the Glo Crystals

 

Momilani Elementary School's third grade students presented and starred in the "Guardians of the Glo Crystals" on Wednesday, , May 21 in the school cafeteria. The play was masterfully written and directed by third grade teacher Mr. Masaru Uchino. Mrs. Leona Uyesato, who is also a third grade teacher at Momilani Elementary, served as assistant director and also played the role of the Queen of Momilania.

Momilani third graders were terrific in their roles,  performing for the student body, faculty, and family in two standing room only performances at 8:30am and again that evening at 6:00pm.

This was Mr. Uchino fifth play as writer and director and as in his other presentations, Mr. Uchino hit it "Out of the Park",  Great job!

 

SYNOPSIS:

Our story takes us to the Kingdom of Momilania, a successful community protected by the powers of the ancient GLO Crystals. Over time, the Guardians of the GLO Crystals have become prideful of their powers and have been constantly arguing with each other. The Queen of Momilania, wanting to gain some wisdom of how to handle the bickering Guardians, ventures into the mountains to visit the Shrine of the Ancients. In doing so, the Queen gets captured by the Great Dragon of the mountains, and it's up to the Guardians of the GLO Crystals and all the citizens of Momilania to figure out a way to get her back to the kingdom unharmed.
