This was my family’s first show together so needless to say, we were quite excited about it. The Maui theatre is tucked into a plaza just behind the famous Front Street in Lahaina. Ulalena is billed as an authentic Hawaiian story about the island of Maui and its people. It features beautiful choreography and singing with a little twist of Cirque du Soleil. You can learn more about this shot here. Besides being a nice break from the sun and heat, the show is kid friendly as well. That’s always nice because we struggled finding indoor activites for the kids on Maui. We arrived 10 minutes late (check-in is usually 30 mins before the show) so we had to wait at the top of the stairs until they finished the beginning number. It was perfect because as the dancers exited the stage, the kids got to see the sea creatures “swim” right past them! Once seated, all three kids had their eyes glued to the stage for the rest of the show. Each had their favorite scene they talked about on the car ride home to Kihei. Roman was in awe when a curtain flew over our heads and over the entire theatre. Rhys enjoyed a confetti drop at the end. And my parents? They were quite excited about meeting the actors after the show. I don’t think they were ever greeted by actors before so that was a pleasant surprise for them. This is definitely a must-do when in Maui, especially if you are travelling with children.
