Chaminade University’s 2018 Spring Musical performance at the Mamiya Theatre promises to be a bloody delight. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street has become a worldwide success since being awarded eight Tonys (including Best Musical) for its Broadway premiere.

Featuring two unforgettable star and some of the most chilling music ever written for the stage, this masterpiece is sure to shock, thrill and delight audiences. Sweeney Todd as an infamous tale of an unjustly exiled barber, who returns to nineteenth century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice.

May 11 - 12: DOMINION
IONA Contemporary Dance Theatre (IONA), Hawai’i’s premier dance ensemble, today announced that tickets are on sale for the staging of DOMINION, its epic evening-length work about animals, humans and the spirit that binds us. Two performances will take place at the Hawaii Theatre Center, Friday May 11 and Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. DOMINION is a beautiful and poignant example of how the arts bring awareness to social causes. The work echoes a growing concern we have in today’s world over the mistreatment and extinction of animals. The show goes a step further to examine humankind’s dominion over the food industry in the use of genetic engineering and the sourcing of new “miracle foods” that promote life. DOMINION demonstrates, through the bodies of the dancers, the spirit of life we share with the animals who roam our planet and our living rooms, while taking a humorous and sometimes shocking look at the foods we eat. Tickets, range from $30 - $75, can be purchased at: www.hawaiitheatre.com.
