An 80s classic with a Hawai’i twist. Five local high school students from Honolulu spend a Saturday in detention together to find out that they have more in common than they thought. In this special live streamed stage reading of the classic John Hughes coming-of-age film THE BREAKFAST CLUB, this pidgin english rendering will be performed by local actors from the Honolulu theatre community. Directed by Hawai’i born actor and Improv Hawaii founder Kimee Balmilero (HAWAI’I FIVE-0, MAGNUM P.I), get ready to eat up this Brat Pack classic with two scoops rice and lots of ono gravy on top. 

Expect props, costumes, wigs, and some other surprises and all done as a benefit performance for local charities. So, saddle up, because hana okolele, you go detention! Join us, which may include a brain, an athlete, a basketcase, a princess and a criminal. Does that answer your question?
