HILO: The Best of Aloha Shorts - Live!

Audiences responded with standing ovations to the readings from the Bamboo Ridge Press anthology The Best of Aloha Shorts this past summer. Now, HPR is proud to bring The Best of Aloha Shorts - Live! to the Neighbor Islands, featuring the original cast, some new material, and hosted by HPR Arts and Culture Reporter Noe Tanigawa. Multi-Hōkū-winner and Hilo native Mark Yamanaka will be the featured musical guest.

The performance in Hilo will be on Friday, February 8, 7:30pm at the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center (map).

Hilo VIP Tickets include a pre-show reception from 6:00-7:00pm.

Co-produced by Bamboo Ridge Press and Hawai‘i Public Radio, the much-loved radio program Aloha Shorts went off the air six years ago -- but has not been forgotten. Audiences still remember hearing some of Hawai‘i’s finest writers, actors, and musicians coming together in celebration of local literature. The collection The Best of Aloha Shorts brings together more than thirty poems and stories from the program's peak years, pieces not only excellent unto themselves, but also outstanding in performance.

The Best of Aloha Shorts book coverA limited number of soft-cover copies of the anthology are available for purchase from HPR with your ticket order. To reserve a copy, see "Additional Items" on the payment page. Your pre-ordered copy will be available for pickup in the lobby of the UH Hilo Performing Arts Center before or after the show or during the intermission. You may also purchase the book at the event or online from Bamboo Ridge. A book signing will follow the live performance.
