from 'Ulalena
This is a unique and compelling story of the people of Hawaii. The 'Ulalena Maui Theatre presents a theatrical experience as impressive as the story. This is not just a theater. It is a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art venue built for this presentation. It employs the talents of some of Hawaii's most distinguished musicians and performers, combining live traditional Hawaiian music with 8-channel surround sound. Talk about Maui entertainment!

Every seat maintains a sense of intimacy and interaction with the performance, blended with acrobatic feats of strength and beauty. Hula is combined with modern dance.

"Brought me to tears"
July, 2016
How can a historical review in dance and song bring a pragmatic mainlander to tears? Through beautiful choreography, mesmerizing songs and aerial beauty. Presented with outstanding costumes and simple effects with fabric, percussion and props this production transported me into the lives of early Maui residents. I lived their struggles and emotions as vivid colors filled the stage and extended out into the audience. A must see. One of the highlights of my trip.
Tip: Every seat is a good seat in this small theatre. Be on time, you don't want to miss a moment.

"Hawaiian History in Modern Dance"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 24, 2017 NEW
Great legends, and history brought to life with modern dance. The show was very riveting even for children. The dance was beautiful, costumes, sound and lighting were also excellent. I would give this 5 stars, but I got confused in some of the legends because people were playing a new role. I did not realize that it was a new role until half way through the dance.

We opted to go to this show instead of an outdoor luau. We had 3 adults and 3 teens/Tweens. We all loved it! Before the show, we wandered up and down the shops at Front Street. The Maui Theatre is small, so basically every seat is a good one. We got the cheapest tickets (and ordered ahead of time online.) No regrets. You're asked to arrive at least a half hour before it starts. You'll check in and, at that time, they'll assign your specific seats within your chosen section. You can get popcorn, drinks, etc at their concessions counter (like you would at a movie theatre.) The show itself was creative, artistic, and the vocals were fantastic! About 75 minutes long, I think. Some people were dressed nicely, others were hot and sweaty and just in street clothes. (Like us!) After the show, there was a photo opp with some of the main characters in the lobby. We walked out feeling refreshed and lifted! Loved it! (And we were happy to have spent the money on Ulalena rather than food at a luau ...that our kids wouldn't have liked very much!) 😜

"Good but not excellent..."

Visited Maui and were old this was an excellent show. It lasted about 1.5 hours and was entertaining. Excellent music all created in house and some great dancers and actors. Some not as excellent and I felt some parts of the performance were not as engaging and lost my attention. Overall a different show, just not what I expected. Water at $4/bottle was a bit steep. No water fountain I found so bring some $$ if you want to purchase drinks, can't, popcorn or candy. A different kind of show that many would enjoy.

I must say was not expecting a lot based on the outside and the inside of the theatre. But show was stunning. Great historical representation in dance form of Hawaii. Singers were terrific, truly beautiful voices and the athleticism of the performers was much to admire. Would fully recommend.
