Open auditions will be held to cast the world premiere of My Boy He Play Ball, by Tammy Hailiʻōpua Baker.  The show will be directed by John Wat and runs November 5 – December 6, 2015.

Boy Kahalewai is living the dream: a Division I football scholarship at a mainland college, a chance to play pro, and a loving family back home. But as he struggles with intense pressure from his father and awakens to his Hawaiian roots, Boy starts to wonder whose dream he’s been living all along.

Tammy Haili‘ōpua Baker, the pioneering author of Lā‘ieikawai and Kamapua‘a, returns to Kumu Kahua after more than 15 years with a funny, deeply-rooted story of fathers, sons, and modern Hawaiian identity.

There will be a free audition workshop held from 3:00-5:00 pm, Saturday August 29, 2015, also at Kumu Kahua Theatre.  This workshop is an opportunity for all interested to work with the script and director, and learn the best way to prepare for this audition.

The workshop is free, but space is limited.  Please call 536-4222 or email to reserve your spot.
