After a sold-out run at Kumu Kahua Theatre, the cast and crew of Edward Sakamoto's Fishing for Wives will take the show to the Maui Arts and Cultural Center on March 22nd and 23rd for two shows only.
Continuing their commitment to a Local Voices Series, each year the MACC invites Kumu Kahua Theatre to bring a "local" theatrical piece to Maui. The original cast of the popular show, which premiered at Kumu Kahua Theatre in November 2012, will appear at the MACC. On O'ahu, the November run of the show was the world premiere. Nearly every performance of the show was sold out.
Performances are at 7:30 pm in the McCoy Studio Theatre. For tickets, call 808-242-SHOW (7469), or visit MauiArts.org.
The Maui Arts and Cultural Center is devoted to being a gathering place where the community can celebrate creativity in personal and shared experiences of the arts.
Kumu Kahua Theatre is devoted to telling the stories of Hawai'i, and developing her playwrights, artists and audiences.
On Saturday, March 23, at 3 pm in McCoy Studio Theater, Maui Arts & Cultural Center and Kumu Kahua Theatre of O'ahu will present a FREE opportunity for actors to hone their character development skills in a workshop environment:
The Monologue: During skilled delivery of a monologue, an actor communicates an encapsulation of all that he is, wants and fears. During a not so "on" delivery, the actor communicates lines -- and possibly the actor's desire to communicate. This makes the monologues themselves -- any monologue -- an excellent tool for actors' instruction.
Visiting Maui with performances of the show Fishing for Wives from Kumu Kahua Theatre, Kumu Kahua Managing Director, award winning actor and director, Donna Blanchard; and Mid-Pacific Institute School for the Arts Educator, director and playwright, John Wat will present The Monologue Workshop for Maui theatre artists.
The workshop is open to anyone. We request that you bring a prepared, memorized, 2-3 minute monologue to work on, though you may use a script if necessary. If you do not have a monologue, you'll be given material to work with.
Actors at the workshop you will receive assistance meeting your level of experience/education, including character, motivation and relationship development.
There is no charge for this class. To register, email: email@example.com by 5 pm on Friday, March 22.
