An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, JEKYLL & HYDE is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of Man’s evil nature from his good, Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde. Book & Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, Music by Frank Wildhorn.

“Somebody Has To Die!”

This Who-Done-It comedy takes place in the Weiner residence. Mr. Weiner’s two children need money and they plan to inherit – one way or the other. But his nurse wants to marry into the family fortune, and his housekeepers need their jobs! This farcical comedy has an ensemble cast of ten student actors and was penned by a local playwright and member of the class. So do please join us for a rollicking hour of comedy at the Aloha Theater and help us figure out who done it! (We’re still not sure.)

Andy McKee is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists, and his crossover success to over 150 million YouTube viewers underscores his emergence as one of today’s most unique and influential artists. To fans of virtuoso musicianship it is Andy’s attention to song structure and melodic content that elevates him above the rest. To fans of popular music Andy entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique. He’s been featured as a cover story in both Acoustic Guitar Magazine in the U.S. and Acoustic Magazine in the UK, and is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters tours which have traveled the world over the past three years.
With his influence continuing to grow, in 2012 Andy was personally asked by living-legend Prince – yes PRINCE, who found him on YouTube! – to join his band for a series of shows in Australia. Andy now looks to challenge himself even further in 2014 and beyond with more surprise collaborations, diverse music releases, development of new instrument products (including Ernie Ball’s Aluminum Bronze strings) and ceaseless international touring including new markets such as India, Argentina, Russia, the Middle East and Greece.

Nathaniel Hackmann is currently making his Broadway debut in the tony award winning Les Miserables (Jean Valjean/Javert). He has starred in national tours of Beauty and the Beast, The King and I, Oklahoma and Sweeney Todd. He really found his brilliance though, as Les Miserables’ Jean Valjean, which he has now played in two national tours of the great, multi-award winning show. He has extraordinary range and richness of tone that have stunned critics and audience alike.
Joining Nathaniel in his first visit to Hawaii is his wife Nicole Bégue Hackmann, who has played across from him in the major role of Fantine from Les Miserables, and tours with him across the country for special intimate concerts like this. The acclaimed mainland pianist Sean Rogers will accompany them.
“The star vocal honors belonged to Nathaniel Hackmann’s superbly sung Anthony. The rich and ringing tone he brought to his paean to Joanna, the impassioned youthful spirits, the beautiful control on the hushed declarations of love, Mr. Hackmann regaled us with ravishing vocalism of the top tier. Add to the mix the fact that he is boyishly appealing, and you have, well, a definitive performance of the plucky lad.”
