The wait is over! Last year, theatre audiences were introduced to Andrew, Anden, Tutu and the whole wacky Ahi 'ohana in the hilarious original comedy "Lesser Ahi."
Beginning on April 12, "Fresher Ahi" will continue the family's funny, endearing and unforgettable antics in part two of the Ahi trilogy at the Maui Academy of Performing Art's (MAPA) Steppingstone Playhouse in Queen Ka'ahumanu Center.
Maui playwrights-actors Derek Nakagawa and Francis Tau'a will reprise their multiple roles (male and female) from "Lesser Ahi," as well as creating a host of new characters. And this time, they will be joined by the fabulous, funny Kathy Collins, making "Fresher Ahi" the can't-miss comedy of the season.
