The Maui Theatre announced the opening of two new music based shows at the end of this month, that will join the long-running ʻUlalena cast in sharing the Lahaina venue.
Both shows will premiere on Saturday, June 29, and include: You Got It! – a salute to Roy Orbison; and Benise – The Spanish Guitar.
You Got It! – a salute to Roy Orbison, features Australian award-winning singer and songwriter John Stephan.
The production includes performances of various number one Orbison hits, the likes of which include, “Oh Pretty Woman,” “Crying,” and “Blue Bayou,” an announcement said.
The Maui Theatre also welcomes the Maui debut of Benise – The Spanish Guitar.
A description of the show called the performance a “Latin music and dance experience.”
The show reportedly features Emmy Award Winning guitarist Benise, who provides touches of flamenco, salsa, tango, and waltz, as well as classic selections from Led Zepplin, Queen, and The Eagles, an announcement said.
To accommodate the three shows, Maui Theatre will offer two performances nightly.
The weekly schedule, which company officials say is subject to change, includes the following:
- You Got It! with John Stephan: 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday; and 8:30 p.m. on Friday;
- Benise – The Spanish Guitar: 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday; and a special matinee show featuring John Stephan and Benise at 2 p.m. on Monday;
- ʻUlalena: 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
