The King and I

From Emmett via Mumper:

After we finish auditioning "The King And I", I'll be able to let you know how many Iolani Alumni and students will be involved in this show. So far, Greg Zane, Iolani class of '81 is the visiting Director and Chorographer from NYC, who was also in the 1996 revival of this show. I am the Musical Director, My wife is in the orchestra pit with me. There will be others from Iolani as well, but I won't know for certain until Tuesday of next week. Hopefully, I will be able to get pictures too. We will also have a visiting New York actor by the name of Paolo Montalban who will do the role of the King. People would be familiar with him as he was the Prince in the latest television production of Cinderella with Brandy.

Aloha, Emmett.

PS. We should have an Iolani night or matinee at the theater for this show. I don't have the time to organize it since I will be rehearsing the show every night, but I can refer anyone who wants to take that on as a project, to someone at the theater. We may be able to get special pricing and/or special seating. We gotta do this quick since it will be a sure fire sell out as well as being extended. We open March 25th and run 3 weekends Thursday through Sundays with matinees on Saturday and Sunday. I would recommend a Sunday Matinee at 4:00 PM.
