Hansel Ka‘aumoana (Keolo‘ewa) is more than honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the Hawaiian opera production of Hā‘upu in the American High School Theater Festival in Scotland and in Hō‘ike. In Edinburgh, he hopes to learn about the culture of Scotland, what makes it special, and how he can apply it to his own life. This is not the first time that Hansel has traveled outside of the country. In the summer of 2015, he traveled to Japan to learn their culture as well. In Edinburgh, Scotland, he hopes he’ll gain a whole new experience as he did in Japan. He was born and raised in Hilo. Hansel is a junior from Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi Campus, who has participated in some of the school productions, including Fiddler On The Roof and West Side Story. His interests include wrestling and judo as a school sport and activity. He’d like to thank his family, colleagues, teachers, and the generous members of the community for their support of the show.
