In the Hawai‘i state premiere of this new musical, a recently released parolee makes her way to Gilead, Wisconsin to start a new life, inspired by a page from an old travel book. Both the town and Hannah’s Spitfire Grill, where she works, have seen better days - when hope was alive and the town was thriving. Filled with heart, passion, and folk-based songs, The Spitfire Grill is a musical about hope and transformation in difficult times. This production is a collaboration between the UHM Department of Theatre & Dance and the UHM Department of Music.

Xiqu (Chinese “opera”) performed in English!


February 16, 17, 23, 24, 25, 2018
FRI/SAT 7:30pm & SUN 2:00pm


Showcasing the vibrancy of traditional  Chinese theatre, these delightfully contrasting plays celebrate the chou – or comic – character, an irrepressible force of comedy who continually reveals the laughter in life.  Filled with convoluted acrobatic contortions, mistaken identities, adorable lovers, and exhilarating battles, this celebration of “the clown” will appeal to audiences of all ages.

Nora
Adapted by Ingmar Bergman from Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House; Directed by Stacy Ray

April 13, 14, 20, 21, 22, 2018
FRI/SAT 7:30pm & SUN 2:00pm


Creating Nora, legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman took Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece,  A Doll’s House,  and stripped it to the bare essentials.  With only the central characters depicted,  the psychological drama is intensified and exposes the heart of Ibsen’s controversial play without mercy or apology.  Following the predicament of Nora, the audience, too, will ponder the dilemma of “what are we willing to sacrifice to save others… and ourselves.”
