Sneak a Peek at the Play!

The Conversion of Ka'ahumanu delves into relationships. Over the course of the play the women's relationships within their own culture and between cultures are affected and changed by religion, friendships, personal trials, and cultural conflict and collisions. The following rehearsal photos show two scences in which the women confront and negotiate their very different worlds and their evolving relationships with each other.

Act 1 Scene 6: The Hawaiian women meet the missionaries for the first time and are shocked by their foreign appearance and dress.

Act 2 Scene 6: While Ka'ahumanu gives Sybil a lomilomi massage the missionary relaxes and shares secrets with the Hawaiian women.

  1. This looks amazing! I wish I did not live so far away in the other Washington. Will this production be traveling to the rest of the states?
