Hawai’iana Live will celebrate its 250th show on December 28, 2011 with special guests Stan Kaina and Pi’ilani Rodrigues at Hilo’s Historic Palace Theater. The mighty pipe open welcomes guests at 10:45 a.m. and this charming show begins at 11 a.m. Tickets are just $5 and Keiki 12 and under
In an era when special effects, synthesized sound, and electronically enhanced productions are the norm, the Palace offers a chance to slip back in time, to spend 45 minutes in yesteryear, savoring the unhurried,
unamplified simplicity of an old-fashioned live variety show -Hawaiian-style.
Now wrapping up five continuous years the show features a different theme each week. Chants, hula, songs, stories, and a video relating to that theme are presented by Leilehua Yuen, ‘Hilo’s Hostess of Hawai`iana’.
Organist Rick Mazurowski plays the theater’s vintage pipe organ, one of the largest in the Pacific region. Special guests are often featured. Call the Palace at 934-7777 for more information or visit the Palace website: http://www.hilopalace.com. Don’t miss this landmark show that is sure to delight one and all and features a few surprises too!
