The Plaza Photovoice Project,” a free photo exhibit showcasing the creativity of more than 50 of Hawaii’s seniors, will be on display at the Hawaii State Library from November 3 to 29 in the Lobby.

This exploratory exhibition is suitable for all ages, and may be viewed during normal library hours.

HPU presents 'Fiddler on the Roof' thanks to Cannon foundation gift

 

The musical "Fiddler on the Roof" will be presented at Hawai‘i Pacific University, Nov. 7-30, directed by Joyce Maltby. This production of one of Broadway's most beloved works is made possible through funding from the Glenn Cannon Foundation.

 

Cannon, who died last year, was a prominent director, actor and teacher in Hawai‘i, and well known for roles in the original Hawaii Five-O and Magnum P.I. television series.

 

"The Glenn Cannon Foundation was established to preserve Glenn's memory and to carry on his passion for the performing arts by providing support to educational and community theatre," said Samsil Cannon, of her late husband.
