For Immediate Release

Masters of the Currents, a national theater project about the growing Micronesian community in Hawai’i, comes to the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center (PAC) on Thursday, March 8, at 7:30 pm.

The play is a story of three Micronesian youths on their journey of identity growing up in Hawai’i, and the conflicts they must overcome to be accepted by their peers while seeking connections to the history and rich cultural traditions of their ancestral islands of Micronesia.

Nationally recognized creative duo Ova Saopeng and Leilani Chan have been working closely with communities in Honolulu to gather stories and lead multi-generational theater workshops.

Tickets are reserved seating and priced at $25 General, $20 Discount and $12 UH Hilo/ Hawaiʻi Community College students (with a valid student ID) and children, up to age 17, pre-sale, and $30, $25 and $17 at the door.
