Aloha Performing Arts Company recently kicked off its 27th production season with its 21st annual Original Play Festival, which featured staged readings of seven new, unpublished, unproduced plays in four days. The main stage season of fully produced shows begins in October, with the Gothic musical thriller “Jekyll and Hyde.” This moody, evocative tale is loosely based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. With book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and music by Frank Wildhorn, the show runs Oct. 10 through Nov. 2.

Oscar Wilde regarded the theatre as the greatest of all art forms. According to Wilde, the theatre is “the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another, the sense of what it is to be a human being.” The Kahilu Theatre, under the leadership of artistic and managing director Tim Bostock, carries on this great tradition and announces its 2014-2015 presenting season, which runs from September to June. In addition to Kahilu’s education programs and community rentals, Kahilu is also a presenting theatre, meaning it hosts visiting companies whose productions have been developed elsewhere and brought into the theatre.
