This story tells of the creation of the Hawaiian islands. Thoroughly enjoyed it and well worth the couple of hours entertainment. Park in the pay parking across the road and get your ticket validated for free parking.

This is a great family activity as long as you understand the basics of Hawaiian mythology. Parking can be a bit challenging, but there is parking nearby.

I remember thinking of Cirque de Soleil and walked away thinking I would like to see it in the future. We returned to Maui every year for the next 13 years,... More

We met Vene one of the performers in this show while taking the Ko'ie'ie Fishpond Cultural Tour in Kihei. He mentioned he was appearing in this show and arranged for our tickets. Ulalena is at the Maui Theatre, 837 Front Street, Lahaina, www.mauitheatre.com, you can also purchase dinner/theatre packages. This show is definitely worth seeing; approximately 20 professional cast members... More

WOW! I just got home from seeing 'Ulalena for the second time in a month. It is the most beautiful show I have experienced in a LONG time. The production is technically astounding. Absolutely stunning to look at! There is a cast of 16 or 17 men and women. They are dancers, singers, and aerialists. The lead female singer was... More

It was a very interesting and creative telling of the history of Hawaii. We loved watching the musicians, especially the percussionis,t who used all different items to make thunder and everything else.

I would highly recommend Ulalena as an opportunity to learn about some of the history of the Hawaiian islands and how this story could be universal for other parts of the world. This play provides an extraordinary story of the challenges and opportunities explorers and those people and places discovered, experience when they cross paths. The sets and cast provide... More
