If you are looking for some culture about Hawaii, go see this! Not only are the actors very talented, but the music is INCREDIBLE. I was especially pleased with the male and female singers, as well as the two men playing the drums and many instruments up top during the show. It's not too long so take the kids, they... More

Friends who grew up in Maui highly recommended we catch this show. It was incredible and held everyone's attention (two adults and two kids (10 & 12). The facility is excellent and I doubt their is a "bad seat." The sets were professionally done, fish puppets, and other effects outstanding. The actors/performers were comfortable and interacted with the audience. The... More

This was a great show with lots of Hawaiian history being told in a theatrical way. It was very interesting and is a family event. There is not a bad seat in this theatre so save your money for a nice dinner and get the cheapest seat available.

Took my sister to see this show. My third time to see it. Her first. She felt very moved by the experience and really enjoyed it. Although she said she had no idea what was going on, she could tell there was so much emotional meaning to the story, the song, and the dance. If you want to know more... More

We found this show to be awesome. It is the story of Hawaii with a little cirque flare. When you go in, they give you a little pamphlet which tells you about the show and the story. TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT! It is quick. The show is all in Hawaiian with some english narration. A great way to... More

Ulalena Theatre was a very beautiful and artistic presentation of the history and legends of Hawaii from ancient times to present day, with live music and singing. Very well done! Very professional. Amazing effects! Kind of like a combination of Cirque du Soleil with a hula show. It's so hard to describe that you've just got to go and see... More

We took some friends from New Zealand to the best show on Maui, Ulalena, and we all loved it. The music, performances, costumes and staging is all excellent. We have the soundtrack on our iPhone and listen to it all the time. It has been a while since we have gone and can't wait for more visitors to come so... More

The show is well designed, a beautiful reflection and recounting of Hawaii's history. The music was gorgeous and moving, and enhanced the show perfectly.

A great presentation of drama, music, acrobatics, humor, history, and audience participation. Our party enjoyed the dancing, percussion and the expressiveness of the performers. A "MUST SEE" Maui attraction.
