A new community theatre gracing the east side of Oahu, Kailua Onstage Arts makes its debut with The Wolves, a 2017 Pulitzer finalist for Drama. The play follows the story of teenage girls, all part of a volatile soccer team, who basically want to win a game and become recognized, not only by college scouts, but each other as well. Themes of loss, liberty, puberty, and sisterhood are all explored, creating a stunning portrait of adolescents all in hopes of understanding themselves and each other, while simultaneously attempting to forge their own paths and futures.BWW Review: NEWSIES at Diamond Head Theatre Carries the Banner August 15, 2018

While many spectacular features comprise this marvelous musical, what truly stands out is its impressive cast, elevated by its lead performances, choreography, and musical direction.
