Welcome!

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!

Aloha everyone, and welcome to a very busy weekend of theatre!

Due to Hurricane Lane, we have six shows at six theatres on Oahu that are either closing or opening! It's easy to miss one, so we have them all listed here for you for easy reading and convenience! For details, dates, and information, click the links to visit their listing. 

CLOSING THIS WEEKEND

The Crusade of Connor Stephens at TAG- The Actors' Group: From the writer of the critically acclaimed Death of the Persian Prince and A Normal Life comes the award-winning new play, The Crusade of Connor Stephens, where extreme loss shakes a Texas family as it comes to terms with a tragic act of violence.

As you can see, that is a lot of theatre! Hitting the Stage encourages you to support our local arts community by going to see live theatre around the state. We hope to see you there, and if you want to share some words or write a review about a show you feel strongly about, Hitting the Stage gladly accept community reviews to post and publish!

See you at the shows!

Mahalo,

Michael Donato, Director of Hitting the Stage
