Gather the aiga/family for Alatini, the story of a charming young man with resilience and bravery who dreams of rescuing his family from poverty. After a chance meeting with the beautiful Princess Kalani, everything seems to be going perfectly until a conniving Sosora hatches an evil plan. Will Alatini defeat his nemesis and save the day? Or will his desires get the best of him? This magical mash-up of a musical will make you laugh, warm your heart, and fill you with pride at the talented Aukilani born-and-raised cast.
