Kathy Collins (Playwright & Actor) is an actress, storyteller, comedienne, emcee, radio & TV host, Maui News columnist and freelance writer. She is eternally grateful to Sue Ann Loudon and the Baldwin High Theatre Guild for putting the greasepaint in her blood, over 40 years ago, while presenting The Wizard of Oz for hundreds of Maui schoolchildren. Her pidgin-speaking alter ego “Tita” performs throughout the state and the mainland, sharing Hawaiian legends and the spirit of Aloha. Kathy is delighted to be part of MAPA’s educational tour of The Fisherman and his Wife.
Kahala Greig (Composer, Musical Director & Mele Man) has been playing Hawaiian music for over 40 years. In the fourth grade he won a public service announcement contest on the KMVI radio station with two of his classmates. They recorded an anti-smoking jingle that was played over the radio and from then on he was hooked on music! Performing Hawaiian music has taken him to all the major Hawaiian islands as well as California and the east coast. In his spare time he teaches music to the Lahainaluna Hawaiiana Club and Boarder’s Chorus to help them prepare for their yearly David Malo Day Ho’olaule’a.
