of ‘Iso Peanut’

Lisa Matsumoto's "The Princess and the Iso Peanut" will open an encore engagement at Diamond Head Theatre July 7.

Tickets, at $10 to $40, are on sale now at the DHT box office, and you'd better rush down to get them. First presented in 1999, the musical played to sold-out crowds and was extended three times.

The musical tells the story of Princess Alexis, who encounters outrageous characters as she goes on a long journey to find her prince.

Colleen Fujioka will play the princess and Bryan Yamasaki will appear as Prince Yoshi.

Performances will run 8 p.m. Thursdays to Saturdays and 4 p.m. Sundays through July 23.

Call 734-0274.

Slater in 'Windtalkers'

Christian Slater joins Nicholas Cage in the John Woo- directed film "Windtalkers," which starts filming in Hawaii in August.

Slater will portray one of the soldiers, who are ordered to kill the men they're assigned to protect if capture seems imminent. The soldiers were to guard the windtalkers, Navajo recruited during World War II to transmit and receive code in their native language. The use of Navajo stymied Japanese codebreakers.
