Round two in a monthly series, this island improv comedy show features fast-paced games, wacky characters and even a few musicals. If you liked the TV show, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” you won’t want to miss this one, which is character based comedy from audience suggestion. Each performance is completely different because each audience co-creates the show with the cast and a live band. Get your giggles on and don’t forget to bring your friends for a night full of laugh-out-loud fun.

John Melville Kelly:  The Artist and Printmaker
Exhibit in Schaefer International Gallery
Opening Reception:  Saturday, July 17 from 5 to 7 pm
This exhibit is a retrospective of printmaking works by John Kelly, dating back to the height of his popularity in the 1930s and 40s through 1962. Kelly is well known for his idyllic depictions of Native Hawaiian women, fishermen and lei makers from the nostalgic golden era of Hawai‘i. The exhibition will follow major differences in technique and style which reflect the artist’s skills as a printmaker and his ability to capture the island way of life. A small collection of works by his partner and wife, Kate Kelly, will be exhibited for the first time.
Open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 5 pm, FREE admission.
