Well produced and entertaining. Great live music to accompany the performance. Ulalena is a welcomed indoor break to all the outdoor activities you will be doing while on Maui.

Fourth time seeing this fabulous production of the Polynesian cultural migration to the Hawaiian Islands. See and understand something more each time. Recommend seating in center section or to your left. The orchestra, in particular the percussion section, is to the right of seating and can be somewhat over-whelming. Costuming, music, narration and choreography of Polynesian history are a must... More

We absolutely loved this production. These kids put their heart and soul into the performance. The venue is small and intimate, and yet large enough to allow the players to unfold a beautiful story of Hawaii and its rich history. Some amazing choreography, accompanied by great vocals. There was a little bit of something for everyone. When we return next... More

An excellent show that really portrays the history of Hawaii in a beautiful way. The music and dancing is superb, the actors truly reflecting the Hawaiian spirit and the musicians and percussionists are fabulous. We have seen the show six times, with different friends and family who came to visit. They all said they got much more out of it... More

The show was both infomative and entertaining. The story was understood and touched the hearts of the entire family. Two daughters, 14 & 18 talke about the show that night, the trip home and told theirs friends at school as well. It was very easy to put yourself in the actors shoes

My boyfriend and I went to Maui and hadn't even heard of Ulalena. We attended an island orientation for first-timers at our resort and had won one ticket to go see it. Of course, we had to buy another ticket so we can both experience it and safe to say, we're glad we did. It was beautiful and we were... More

Went here with my older parents. They had been told by their innkeepers to check out Ulalena... I need to remember my parents are getting older and perhaps that their interests are a little different than mine at this stage in life. :) The age of the audience was definitely on the older side. Only saw a few kids and... More

Show runs about 1 1/2 hours.in a theatre with 1/2 hour comfort seating. It's a kind of a story told in dance, but it's the same dance for 1 1/2 hours. It may be telling a Hawaiian story in dance, but does not use what one would call Hawaiian dancing. I noticed some folks leave in the middle of the... More
