“Worth The Price of Admission”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

You can't visit Lahaina without seeing Ulalena at the Maui Theatre. It is a well done, and entertaining production. Staff is friendly, accommodating and happy to see you. Performers are professional, and production is well done. Keep in mind that this is not Las Vegas or Broadway, but a well done, and entertaining local production.

Get the Dinner Package which is a fantastic value, and you will have your choice of eating at Lahaina Prime Rib and Fish (my choice) or Ruth Chris (if you want to stick with a well known brand that you probably already know). You also get VIP seating for the show (there is not a bad seat in the house, but this puts you close up).

Support the Theatre, support the performers, and have a great night out in Lahaina!

“Dinner and a show - one of the best on Maui”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We saw Ulalena a number of years ago, but it was even better this year. They have an awesome VIP package that includes dinner, preferential seating, and parking. We chose the dinner at Ruth's Chris. Dinner was wonderful and even included a glass of wine. We sat in an excellent location in the theatre, and were treated to a backstage event with the performers after the show. Our parking was taken care of as well. With our "senior" discount, the entire event was less than what we would normally spend for dinner in the Lahaina area. It will be a "must see" for us on all our future trips. The performance changes a little each evening since the performers are given some flexibility in how their role plays out for the evening. Great deal!

“A must do if on Maui”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is a very slick production. There is a large cast who all performed faultlessly. It is the story of the islands from the original settlers to modern times.

You are strongly reccomended to read the synopsis before the show, because otherwise you will miss the importance of some of the scenes.

We reccomend seats on the left (as looking as the stage) because the musicians are high up on the right, and those just below them will miss some of the performance.

“Great evening!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening. We had dinner VIP tickets which included a delicious dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse. We chose dinner before the show rather than after. The performance was so beautifully done. The singers and musicians were outstanding. The dancing was very enjoyable. Overall, well worth the price of the tickets.

“Nice Show”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

The show was very good and a pleasant break from shopping.This show was recommended to us by friends and we are telling our friends about it. The show is in a previous movie theater so all of seats are pretty good. The center section is always the best for any show. They do sell snacks if you are planning on going to dinner afterwards.
