CATS Hawaiian Luau to benefit cultural enrichment

Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra (CATS) invites everyone to celebrate the Hawaiian culture with them at a luau to be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday. The festivities will include authentic food, drink, dance and song. Proceeds from the luau will help fund the Cultural Enrichment Program in 2011 – their companion to multicultural theatre.

CATS’s popular Asian cooking classes, bus trips, walking tours, workshops, bookings, concerts, book-signings, as well as Asian-themed documentaries and movies have all been great additions to their annual productions.

The luau will feature the local hula group, Ka Hale Hula O Pilialohaokalani O Hilo and music by Cool Hand Uke led by Dan Scanlan. The menu will be as authentic as possible with spit-roasted pig, fresh poi from Hawaii, chicken long lice, fruit kabobs, grilled veggies, spam sushi and shaved ice.

Enter the Best Hawaiian Shirt and Attire contest and win two tickets to “The King and I,” CATS’s 2011 production.

The Luau will be held at the Roth Estate at 12282 North Bloomfield in Nevada City.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door.
