You’ve heard a lot of great things about the luaus of Hawaii. You’ve read all about the bountiful spreads of delicious food. Maybe you’ve even heard about all the fun activities that keep everyone entertained. You’re excited by the idea of feasting and being immersed in the culture of the islands.

But what if you also want to become an active part of the experience? You’re not alone. There’s just something about Luau shows that attracts extroverts like a moth to a flame. Whether you’re a theater major yearning for your glory days or you just love to ham it up, luaus are your opportunity to steal the spotlight

If “audience participation” is on your list of priorities luaus will not disappoint.  We’re not just talking about the activities like learning how to make a lei or other interactive crafts, either. Audience participation at luaus is a regularly scheduled part of the entertainment at all luaus.

If you want a chance to become part of the show, the best luau for audience participation is Chief’s Luau.

Hail to the Chief

Chief Sielu loves talking to the Keiki (kids).

Many incredible elements of the Chief’s Luau make it such a highly-rated production. Firstly, Chief Sielu Avea, the charismatic host and emcee of the entire affair, thrives on the energy of the audience.

Not to take anything away from the other terrific luaus, but Chief Sielu is especially good at engaging his audience. He often seeks members of the audience. He’s always looking for eager folks to jump on stage to take part in creating a fun-filled, entertaining show.

The Chief knows how to keep the energy high and captivate an audience. He’ll create an evening that’s difficult to top and even harder to forget.

Chief’s Luau show doesn’t hesitate to let the audience in on the fun. Especially those willing to become an active part of the show. Even if you wind up sitting it out, it’s a blast to watch. Audience members are subjected to Chief Sielu’s playful teasing. He obviously enjoys interacting with the audience. Chief is more than just an emcee, he’s a performer with a warm and addictive personality. He’s also hilarious!

In addition to the onstage fun, you also get to watch Chief Sielu perform. He is a world-champion fire-knife dancer and he’ll demonstrate his dazzling skills along with his crew of fire-knife dancers.
