A Cast of Diverse Origins.
All cast members are, or have been, students at the adjoining BYU-Hawaii campus, and come from all corners of Polynesia. Participation in "Hā" provides them scholarship funds with which to gain an education that otherwise may be impossible.
The cast consists of over 100 members, making it the largest evening show production on the Hawaiian Islands. Because all cast members are natives of numerous Pacific isles, dances performed are historically and culturally accurate. The unusual and colorful costuming is likewise true to their ethnic origins.
