Open auditions will be held to cast the World Premiere of Lee Cataluna’s?Aloha Attire.? The show will be directed by R. Kevin Garcia Doyle and runs November 5 – November 22, 2020.?Both the auditions and performances for this production will be held on Zoom. 

Lee Cataluna takes advantage of the unique platform of “live, digital theatre” with this tribute to 1980s Hawai‘i, framed by the clothes we wore.  

Your invitation to the 80s includes the vaguely defined dresscode: ?"aloha attire"  

What does that even mean? In this play, written specifically for online production, we will examine classic aloha attire pieces like the shorty-mu‘u, dressy slippers, gold-dipped maile leaf pendants, and the 17 ways to wrap a pareu. Let your fashion consultant take you through stories of what we wore, what it meant, and why it was so awesome. 


Director R. Kevin Garcia Doyle is looking for actors to fill the following roles: 

Destinee “Des”– early 20s, the narrator, present day 


Ala – girl, Kini’s friend, we see her as a 4th grader and then middle-schooler 


Kini – sister of Kaipo and Theresa, we see her as a 4th grader and then middle-schooler 


Kaipo – middle child between Kini and Theresa, high school, quick-witted, self-assured 


Alika – high school junior, nice guy but kind of thick  


Kawika – high school junior, Alika’s half-brother, slightly a jerk 


Theresa – high school junior 


Grandma –not a very old grandma. She’s probably late 50s and athletic. 


Billy – Grandma’s son, 20s, gum-chewing, thinks-he’s-cool, creepy

All actors should be familiar with the story. A digital copy of the script can be found?here.??
