Portrayal of Kauai’s last king

The life of the ali‘i ai moku Kaumuali‘i, the last king of Kauai, is being portrayed in a one-act drama that is coming to the Kauai Museum today. Two shows are scheduled for the main gallery of the museum at 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. Admission is free and the performances are open to the public. Reservations are required. Call 245-6931.

Hawaii actor Moses Goods is giving a solo performance as Kaumuali‘i. Goods will act in a period costume.

“Kaumuali‘i lived in a very pivotal time in Hawaii’s history,” Goods said. “The decisions and choices that he and other paramount chiefs made would determine the future of the islands. Trying to understand why they made those decisions is what I find most intriguing about working on projects like this one.”
