Why are there fireworks on the Fourth of July? Find out when an intergalactic alien comes to visit Earth in “Fireworks,” May 11 and 12 at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College.

This family-friendly American opera buffa — part of the Family Opera Initiative — is a one-act play that comically looks at why we have fireworks through the eyes of an intergalactic alien de Toqueville.

On landing the alien meets with a geeky high-schooler, a rebellious teenage girl, and a host of other characters for a zanny explanation of the holiday and the wonders of democracy.

Fireworks, May 11 and 12, 7:30 pm; tickets are $15.

The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College [695 Park Ave. at E. 68th Street on the Upper East Side; (212) 772–4448; www.kayeplahouse.primetix.com/tickets].
