We (the four of us) were very pleasantly surprised at the high caliber of both the singing and acting of the two main characters (sorry, can't remember their names and didn't bring a program home). They really made the characters come alive and believable. The rest of the cast was quite good as well, but the two were wonderful and... More

My husband & I both enjoyed the show mainly because of the familiar music. The voices of Nellie & Emile were very good & Bloody Mary was outstanding. The rest of the cast was just mediocre as was the buffet. However, we were glad we attended.

The buffet dinner was average and the play was a bit disappointing. The actor who played Emile seemed too old for the love interest, the actress who played Bloody Mary was very good. The crowd that was there was 60+ and the production seemed to target this age group. Because we were seated near the back, our view was obstructed.... More

If you want to support the arts in Kauai this is the place to donate your money. Consider it an act of charity. The food was terrible the performance was ok but waaaaayyyyy to long. Cost me over $400 for 4 people. The main performers were good but again waaaaaayyyyy to long and repetitive. I am sure there is a... More

The dinner was average. There was a bar to buy your drinks and soda's. Very spendy. The show was just average as well. I think it's more geared for the older folks. It's a bit boring and the acting and singing is just so, so. If it wasn't for the cost, we would have walked out after the 1st intermission.... More

We rode the bus down from Princeville and met some nice travelers. Our bus driver was informative. The hotel was lovely and the buffet dinner was better than i expected, nice salads, veggies, fish and chicken, rice and potatoes, rolls, cakes etc. The play was very enjoyable. This is not Broadway but local community theater. The leads were charming and... More

My wife, daughter and I escaped the cold of Vancouver a few weeks ago and saw this excellent show which, contrary to what someone wrote, has both great singing and staging. The leads are perfect together with real chemistry and incredible vocal talent, and I can't imagine a more inaccurate depiction of them as being mismatched in any way, let... More

This show was advertised as the Broadway production of "South Pacific," so I expected a first-rate staging. However, the ratty stage props and modern-day hairdos seemed more along the line of a high school show's efforts. The casting could have been done better as well. The lead of Emile was way too old for the romantic interest of young nurse... More

We has fantastic seats for this show, I believe we paid a small up charge for the front row. The actors and singing were first rate. You simply can't beat a Rogers and Hammerstein score. The dinner theater seating was at a table of 10, and conversation was lively for people who had just met. Dinner was buffet style and... More
