Hawaii Theatre Center presents
HAWAII THEATRE CENTER’S ANNUAL FUNDRAISING GALA: “We’ll Always Have Paris…”
May 10, 2014
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS BEING HELD AT THE HALEKULANI
Round up the usual suspects and join Hawaii Theatre at Halekulani Hotel for its annual Gala on Saturday, May 10! The event is themed after the nostalgic longing for the city where Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) fell in love with American expat Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart). The gala is the Theatre’s biggest and most popular fundraiser of the year.
Halekulani Executive Chef Vikram Garg is preparing a sumptuous dinner menu blending Moroccan and French cuisines to present a dining experience worth documenting. The creative team at Current Affairs will set the mood by creating a Marrakech market on Halekulani’s lawn and transforming the ballroom into Rick’s Café Américain, the iconic Moroccan café setting for the film.
Headlining the evening’s entertainment will be internationally acclaimed and Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Sacha Boutros, backed by DeShannon Higa on horn, Dean Taba on bass, Noel Okimoto on drums and Tommy James on piano, with a cameo by Jimmy Borges.
