Open auditions will be held to cast the upcoming production of Koi, Like the Fish by Keali‘iwahine Hokoana at Kumu Kahua Theatre. The show will be directed by Wil Kahele and Justin Fragiao.

Directors Kahele and Fragiao are looking for 6 actors to play these roles:
KOI – 62 year old local male
Yosepha “Yo” – 35 year-old local female, niece / caregiver of Koi
Jamie – 26 year-old local female, postal carrier
Guy – 20 year-old local male, son of Koi
Bryce – 30 something local male, husband of Yosepha
Sophie – 52 year-old female, Koi’s ex-girlfriend, Guy’s mother
Auditions will be held at the Kumu Kahua Theatre, on the corner of Merchant and Bethel Streets. The entrance into Kumu Kahua Theatre is from the small park on the Merchant Street side. Auditions will consist of readings from the script, and some movement exercises. Please dress accordingly. Auditioners may come either day, but should come early and may be asked to stay for the whole time.
There will be a free audition workshop held from 6:00-8:00 pm, March 2, 2014, also at Kumu Kahua Theatre. This workshop is an opportunity for all interested to work with the script and learn first-hand from the production directors what they are looking for.
