In 2016, the Hawaii State Theatre Council and HittingTheStage.com joined forces to create a source of information about Hawaii's local theatres and the community of playwrights, directors, crewmembers, actors, volunteers, and audience that support it. Welcome to our new website!

Uncle's Regularly Scheduled Garage Party is EXTENDED!

Uncle's Regularly Scheduled Garage Party is EXTENDED!


Lee Cataluna's Uncle's Regularly Scheduled Garage Party is CANCELLED Tonight 
EXTENDED for two weeks!

"Uncle's Regularly Scheduled Garage Party Is Cancelled Tonight! brings out the best of Hawaii local culture and audience singalong.....a real hoot of a play.” - Lee Ann Taylor

Our current run of Lee Cataluna's latest smash hit is completely sold out.  If you didn't get a chance to see it yet, or would like to come back, never fear - we're extending for two additional weeks!

 "I really loved it 2 thumbs up for Lee Cataluna” - Anne Akemi Souza 

 The extension will run through July 16th and tickets are now on sale.

Because of the additional cost of the extension, we will be raising our prices slightly for these performances; however, you may purchase tickets at our usual rates until June 19th using the code PARTYON.  

You can use that code when ordering online, or when you call or visit the box office.  When ordering online, after you've selected your show date, you come to the Select Seats screen.  At the bottom of that screen you'll see a space to fill in and apply your Promotional Code.  That's where you enter PARTYON.

The discount code will no longer be valid after June 19th.

Many thanks for making the run of this show such a success and for supporting theatre by and about Hawaii's people!

"As an audience member watching Uncle's Regularly Scheduled Garage Party is Cancelled Tonight, I felt like an extended-integrated member of the play. 

This play gave me a homey feeling and showcases Hawaii's local culture; particularly, how the locals party in their garage-- talking stories, jamming the music, grinding the good food, and most importantly sharing the aloha ohana vibe with everybody. Besides undergoing the nostalgia, this play is fun, comical, and amusing.” - Shirley T

Uncle’s Regularly Scheduled Garage Party is CANCELLED Tonight
Thursday June 1, 2017 to Sunday July 2, 2017 A World Premiere by Lee Cataluna
Directed by Harry Wong III
Uncle's regularly scheduled garage party is cancelled for the first time in -- ever! The usual attendees show up and process their shock over the cancellation-- while they eat, drink, talk story and play music. Uncle isn't saying why the party is cancelled, but everyone has a theory: Illness? Financial troubles? Marital discord? Gambling problem? Eviction? Erosion of societal values and loss of culture? Or is Aunty just sick and tired of all their shenanigans?
