Ulalena at the Maui Theater is a unique live theatrical experience in Lahaina! You will not find a another production like this in Hawaii. It is produced by Arra-Montreal, and the $9.5 million dollar production interweaves original music, song, authentic Polynesian dance, and acrobatics. The international cast artfully interlaces the powerful images of Hawaiian mythology and history into a celebration of nature and the spirit of human imagination. The images of Hawaii are brought to life by the professional performers, dazzling special effects, a powerful musical score, and gripping individual and group performances. Ancient Hawaiian passed their legends and history from one generation to another through Hula and Oli (chants). For 14 years, Ulalena at the Maui Theater has captured the artistry played out in everyday Hawaiian life which no luau show has done. This is show is a must-see on your trip to Maui!

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Ulalena is wonderful … the live music is done by an interesting collection of sticks and twigs and drums and flutes … actually there are over 100 instruments used in this performance! The music gives me “chicken skin” (which is Hawaiian for goosebumps). This is artistic theatre … well produced, and those of who appreciate the fine arts will love this show. By the way, it is completely different from a hula show that you will see at a luau. It is very similar to the Cirque du Soleil shows you will find in Vegas. The seating is a little funky at this theater … you don’t buy specific seats like you would a show on Broadway or Vegas. Your seats are reserved, but the actual seat assignments don’t happen until a few days before the show. The sooner you make your initial reservation, the better your seats will be when they are assigned. And the way to guarantee that you have excellent seats is to go for their platinum package.

If you’re looking for other evening entertainment, we suggest Warren and Annabelles Magic Show. There are also many Luau choices on Maui!
