Inaugural symposium, hosted by Mokuola Honua Global Center for Indigenous Language Excellence, focused on language revitalization and normalization.
This April, the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center presents Miss Saigon, a moving testament to the human spirit and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war.
In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. Raw and uncompromising, Miss Saigon is an intensely personal story of the losses we suffer and the sacrifices we make in a world gone mad.
Directed by Jackie Pualani Johnson, musical direction by Armando Mendoza and choreography by Celeste Staton.
