Hilo Play Remembers Trial of Lili'uokalani

A play opens this Friday in Hilo that will recall a political event in our state's history--the overthrow of the monarchy and the trial of Lili'uokalani. But the play goes further than a simple historical summary. HPR's Sherry Bracken explains.

The Trial of Lili‘uokalani will be performed upstairs at the East Hawaii Cultural Center (EHCC), 141 Kalakaua St., in downtown Hilo. Friday and Saturday evening shows start at 7 pm with Sunday matinees at 2 pm.

For tickets, please phone the box office at EHCC: 808-961-5711.  For more information about the production, or more background on the play, please contact HCP Secretary Hal Glatzer at hal@halglatzer.com or by calling 808-895-4816.
