‘When Strangers Meet’
Jeannette Paulson Hereniko has a lot of stories to tell about the 35 years she’s spent in the film industry. So she created a one-woman show, When Strangers Meet, to do so. The play comes to Doris Duke Theatre at Honolulu Museum of Art at 1 and 7:30 p.m. Jan. 30.
The performance features tales of her worldwide travels for her work as a juror for various international film fests, as well as behind-the-scenes details from projects she’s worked on. Currently, Hereniko is a film producer and curator.
TICKETS COST $20, OR $15 FOR MUSEUM MEMBERS.

PlayBuilders of Hawaii is putting together a collaborative theatre project targeted at the local foster care community titled Fostering Ohana.
It’s a year-long immersive program that will guide participants in learning acting skills, while collaboratively creating the play as a group. And to put it all together, PlayBuilders is seeking former foster youths ages 18-26. No experience necessary.
There’s one more chance to audition: 7 p.m. Jan. 24 at The ARTS at Marks Garage.
The process will be led by director Terri Madden, and courses will take place 7 to 9:30 p.m. Sundays. The sessions will cover acting, dance and story development.
The goal of the project is to raise awareness about the challenges that foster children face.
