The idea behind “Malu Bucks” is that we want to reward those of our cast members who have been notably good workers whether on stage or off stage.
Here are just a few examples of reasons we may choose to reward a cast member:
-Coming on time to work
-Cheering on or supporting a fellow co-worker
-Portraying a great attitude!
-Following instructions well
-Performing tasks without being asked
-Showing exceptional ALOHA to guests
-Going above & beyond for guests or cast members
How to Redeem:
Anyone can redeem their “Malu Bucks” at our MALU STORE for miscellaneous items such as:
-Malu Products (i.e. Malu clothing, Malu bags, etc.)
-Gift Cards (i.e. Ala Moana, Happy’s, etc.)
-Show Items (i.e. Beige Underwear, Lashes, etc.)
At the end of every month, Admin will send out a text or email to let the Cast know when our MALU STORE will be open. We will post online a catalogue of available items that you may choose from. You will be able to “redeem your Malu Bucks” on available items. Items will vary monthly and pricing will vary by item. Generally, it would cost “1-3 Malu Bucks” on most items.
Note: You will also be able to make cash purchases at the store.

Heavy Show Days & Elimination of Non-Available Performers: As MALU grows, it has been even more crucial that our performers make themselves available on our HEAVY SHOW DAYS (Sunday, Monday, & Thursday). Thus, effective May 1st we will be removing performers that are not able to accommodate our HEAVY SHOW DAYS (HSD). We do not mind keeping some performers on our list despite their limited availability, HOWEVER if they repeatedly are not available or don't respond in a timely manner, then we prefer to spend our valuable resources and time on those who are committed to our shows. Mahalo to all of you who have made efforts and arrangements with your family, school, and other recreational activities to accommodate our HEAVY SHOW DAYS!!
A Hui Hou to DeAndre: Our Lovable and Talented DeAndre (Kamele) is moving to Australia on May 2nd for 6 months or possibly even longer as he begins to build his musical career there. On Monday, May 1st, he will be performing at the Blue Note and we want to invite anyone to join us there as we bid him an "A HUI HOU". Tickets for his concert can be purchased here.
New Line Captain: Please welcome back Kristen (Ku'upua) as our Line Captain. Kristen has been with MALU since 2011 and has a ton of experience and knowledge about the company. We are happy to have her join our Performance Management Team and know that she will assist us all in keeping our shows HIGH QUALITY and CONSISTENT!
Forever Paradise Show: The opening of the FOREVER PARADISE SHOW has been postponed until all Albizia Trees are removed from property and power-lines are stable. Our dressing rooms have been built and the restaurant has been renovated, so we will continue to prepare for this ALL HAWAIIAN DINING EXPERIENCE.
Boys ‘Uli’Uli Set: Effective April 1st, boys will need to have ‘uli’uli set w/ no feathers. If you have a nice set w/ good feathers, you may trade it in with the Kama’s for a new featherless ‘uli’uli set. Contact admin or send a message on cast page.
- Magic of Polynesia: Our OSMs have been working hard at MOP every night, helping the MOP Cast to improve their professionalism and show! We will start to train some of our dancers in learning this show so that they can work there on our non-heavy show days (Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday). But most importantly our dancers can help to be role models and show professionalism.
- Royal Hawaiian Center: Beginning this month, we will do our RHC Hula Show every WEDNESDAY for 2017! Congratulations to our Hula Team who have been performing there all these years!
Hula Lesson Song Contest: Congratulations to all the participants! We will have the results within the next two weeks.
Dancer & Musician Trainings: THE ENTIRE MONTH OF MARCH & APRIL WILL BE DEDICATED TO LEARNING NEW SONGS AS WELL AS BRINGING BACK OLD SONGS. ALL SONGS WILL BE IMPLEMENTED INTO OUR CURRENT SHOW AND OUR NEW SHOW BEGINNING APRIL 1st. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ATTEND THESE TRAININGS AS WE WILL NOT HAVE ANY MORE TIME OR RESOURCES TO RE-TRAIN. BELOW ARE THE PS HULAS FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.
Help wish our fellow cast, crew, and administrative staff a big HAU'OLI LA HANAU on their special day!
