Plans are coming together for more great shows from UHM Theatre and Dance during the 2017/2018 season.
The Hawai’i state premiere of The Spitfire Grill (the musical) is the season opener in September, a Hana Hou! production of the highly acclaimed Taiko Drum & Dance featuring Kenny Endo’s taiko ensemble takes the stage in November 2017, and in April 2018, an adaptation of the internationally renowned A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen, titled Nora, is the season finale. A special collaboration between our Theatre for Young Audiences and Chinese Theatre experts will bring audiences three family-friendly classic stories from China, Fights & Delights: Three Chinese Comedies, filled with chou characters and their clown-like antics in February 2018.
The primetime series features the culminating thesis works of MFA Directors, Dancers, Choreographers and Playwrights and BFA Dance candidates on the eve of graduation as well as experimental or chamber works directed by faculty. Fall semester 2017 introduces a new play by Kiki (a.k.a. Kiana Rivera), MFA candidate in Playwriting, and two dance concerts featuring BFA and MFA thesis performances in the spring semester.
Catch the Late Night Theatre series at a student-friendly and funky late night hour as they perform edgy, experimental and contemporary works selected by a student board of directors.
