Eric Gilliom – White Hawaiian. McCoy Studio Theater; 7:30 pm Actor/musician Eric Gilliom stars in an original one-man theatrical show, “White Hawaiian,” co-created by writer/director Brian Kohne (Kuleana). This one man show represents the first collaboration between the pair since “Get A Job,” an award-winning comedy produced entirely on Maui in 2010. Music lovers may remember their previous work as co-producers of the Barefoot Natives with Uncle Willie K, which resulted in two award-winning CDs and hysterical sold-out shows in the islands and beyond. Eric Gilliom explores identity through the lens of Hawaiian history, contemporary culture, and family, and this is certainly one show you do not want to miss! Maui’s Eric Gilliom is a recording artist and star of stage and screen, having appeared in movies, TV, on Broadway, and in concert venues throughout the country. He’s performed alongside legends including Willie K, Mick Fleetwood, and Jamie Foxx, and descends from a family of entertainers. “White Hawaiian” is an original one-man show co-writen by long-time collaborator Brian Kohne (Kuleana, Get A Job), and promises to be an evening of storytelling and hysterics audiences will not soon forget.

Vans World Cup of Surfing

Oahu

November 25, 2019 – December 07, 2019:
Vans World Cup of Surfing. This event is the go-for-broke, last ditch effort for athletes to ascend onto the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour by way of the Qualifying Series and is therefore the highest stakes competition of the Vans Triple Crown. Careers are either shaped or shattered at Sunset Beach during the Vans World Cup of Surfing and the waves are typically at their biggest and most powerful, commanding the attention of all. Due to community and sponsor efforts to maintain the fragile ecosystem of Sunset Beach, the best place to witness the action is from the comfort of your own couch via the world-class broadcast at WorldSurfLeague.com
