Hawaii Theater hosts popular live-action musical for families
Honolulu (KHON2) – The Pacific Academy of Performing Arts Program (PAPA) is celebrating its 15th anniversary at the Hawaii Theater with a well-known musical that the whole family will enjoy.
With 15 years dedicated to teaching theater to the youth of Hawaii, the Pacific Academy of Performing Arts holds its annual summer showcase at the Hawaii Theater.
“We love our partnership with Hawaii Theater, the staff have supported our local keiki and our program, allowing us to perform in a professional environment. We have worked with them for 5 years and look forward to many more collaborations with Hawaii Theater and its staff, ”said JP Tai, director of Nickelodeon’s Spongebob The Musical.
In honor of PAPA’s 15th anniversary, Tai and his team made Nickelodeon’s Spongebob The Musical, which can be watched live on the Hawaii Theater official website.
Tai says, “Our children in the Pacific Academy of Performing Arts program worked hard to put this musical together. They know their characters and their origins, which allows them to perform in a show like this. “
Tai believes that because the musical has recognizable characters, the performance of the cast of Nickelodeon’s Spongebob The Musical came naturally.
“I’m super excited to be playing the lead role of SpongeBob SquarePants. I grew up watching cartoons, and now playing it on stage has become a dream come true,” says Colton Cameros, SpongeBob in Bob Nickelodeon’s The Musical sponge.
As his final weekend at the Hawaii Theater approaches, the cast feels grateful for the connections and theatrical knowledge they have gained through this production.
“My favorite part about being a part of this show is the people I’ve met and the work we’ve been able to accomplish as a team. Everyone works hard and the audience will be able to see it in our livestream, ”says Alysha Pastor, Sandy Cheeks in Nickelodeon’s Spongebob The Musical.
Tickets for the latest live broadcast of Nickelodeon’s Spongebob The Musical are available for purchase online through the official Hawaii Theater website.
