Remember yesterday where I confessed to the difficulty of committing to regularly scheduled themes on the blog? Well, despite that, I am still committed to Traveling Thursdays. Last week there were zero takers on Mr. Linky, which was not surprising after my hiatus and missing the travel post myself two weeks in a row.
I hope to build up Travel Thursdays. Perhaps it is being isolated on a rock in the middle of the ocean with a wanderer's heart that keeps me interested in all things related to travel, even if the travel is virtual.
This week's tip? When booking a vacation to Oahu, check out a show at a local community theatre. Diamond Head Theatre and Manoa Valley Theatre are very close to Waikiki and put on wonderful shows. Currently Hair is showing in Manoa. I have not seen it myself, but my theatre involved daughter did on opening night and still cannot stop raving about the show.
Last night, Daughter and I went to the preview of Shout at Diamond Head Theatre. As a child in the 60's and a teenager of the 70's, I could especially connect with this production. The talent in Hawaii is huge and this show was no exception. Great performances by all. Bravo!
Here's a clip of the Mainland version of the show from YouTube -
