This fall the Bishop Museum is expanding its programming with the return of laser shows and children’s stories with a scientific twist.

The J. Watumull planetarium is hosting a children’s play entitled “The Boy who fell in Love with a Star” which combines the building’s technology and live theater.  The play is written and performed by Adela Chu and storyteller Jeff Gere.  Performances run from October 15th until mid-November, with shows at 9:00 and 10:30.  Gere says it’s a science lesson woven into a children’s story.

In addition to the story… the Bishop Museum’s planetarium will bring back its laser light show with the music of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and a Halloween themed “Fright Night”.  There is an additional cost for the Planetarium shows.  Purchasing tickets in advance is strongly recommended. More information can be found at bishopmuseum.org.

Nick Yee’s passion for music developed at an early age, as he collected jazz and rock records pulled from dusty locations while growing up in both Southern California and Honolulu. In college he started DJing around Honolulu, playing Jazz and Bossa Nova sets at various lounges and clubs under the name dj mr.nick. He started to incorporate Downtempo, House and Breaks into his sets as his popularity grew, eventually getting DJ residences at different Chinatown locations. To this day, he is a fixture in the Honolulu underground club scene, where his live sets are famous for being able to link musical and cultural boundaries, starting mellow and building the audience into a frenzy while steering free of mainstream clichés.
