Kumu Kahua Theatre Presents A JIVE BOMBER'S CHRISTMAS, Opening 11/10

A Jive Bomber's Christmas opens November 10th and plays for five weeks at Kumu Kahua Theatre.

It's Christmas, 1943, but nobody feels like celebrating. The world is at war and the soldiers of the 442nd Battalion are fighting in Europe, while at home, Japanese Americans are being illegally detained in internment camps. A group of kids, raised on jazz and jive, social clubs and swing dancing, decide to raise the camp's spirits-with a Christmas show.

Filled with song and dance, laughter and warmth, A Jive Bomber's Christmas arrives at Kumu Kahua just in time for the holidays.

First time Kumu Kahua Director, Stephanie Conching, directs the play. The cast includes Chevy Martinez, Regina Lozano, Daren Kimura, Jessica Ka'uhane, Jarod Bailon, Thanh Apostolides, Christianne Michel, Royce Okazaki, Michael Malone, Henry Williams, Ron Encarnacion, Jenny Kimura, Nahe Bailon and Maka Bailon.
