Valeree Pieper and Heather Herkelman in Mary PoppinsI don’t mean to alarm you, but during my recent interview with Heather Herkelman, the area performer revealed something shocking and rather upsetting: Hawaii, it turns out, isn’t perfect.

“There’s not much of a music scene or theatre scene,” says Herkelman, who returned in February from a year and a half spent living in Honolulu. “It’s beautiful, of course, and there’s just a laid-back happiness, a peacefulness, that made me want to live there. And they have a lot of Hawaiian music, obviously, from their heritage. But that’s about it. And yeah – not a lot of theatre.”

Natalie Anderson, Allison Willie, Autumn Loose, Lauren VanSpeybroeck, Krianna Walljasper, Ben Klocke, Gage McCalester, and Hailie Shemek in The Sound of MusicThere’s an effervescent joy permeating the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s The Sound of Music from beginning to end – minus the Nazi involvement, of course. Director/choreographer Jim Hesselman’s production exudes an infectious glee that, for me, lifts this Rodgers & Hammerstein classic to new heights of performance pleasure. And as Hesselman must know that audiences take great delight in its composers' cherished musical and remember it fondly, he plays to those happy memories.
