We attended Ha' Breath of Life production under Ambassador access. The student players gave an amazingly produced, presented and acted performance. The theater systems, sound, lights, props are as professional or more as any I've seen in New York or Chicago. Visited with the actors/stars...More

No words to capture the essence of this amazing show. I think it was a play divided into 5 different scenes. The story of “life” is portrayed throughout a generation of a family. Superb!!

The dancing, singing, storytelling, backdrops are wonderful. Receive an oral history of Laie and it’s cultures in an inspiring display of dance, music and song

As stated by others, all the seats are fine. The meal is an interesting addition, but not necessary.
