About the Event

A special evening with "Soldier of Orange" and his family.

Come  join a special evening at the Honokaa Peopleʻs Theatre to watch the  movie "Soldier of Orange" (1977) on the big screen starring Rutger Hauer  as EriK.  The award-winning movie Soldier of Orange is presently the  longest running musical production in Dutch history, just breaking its  own record by selling 3-1/2 million tickets in October 2023.   Erik Hazelhoff was a Dutch writer & student critical of Nazi Germanyʻs  policies of excluding the Jewish community who became a resistance  fighter and RAF pilot during the Second World War. Near the end of the  war he was made assistant to Queen Wilhelmina and Knight 4th class of  the Military William Order.

Erik Hazelhoff, whose life it is based on was a well loved and charismatic  community member of Honokaa, and his beloved wife of 60 years, Karin  passed away last year. In memory of their contributions to our community  and worldwide, the Peopleʻs Theatre would like to invite folks to come  learn more about these daring and caring citizens who risked all with so  much aloha.

The  Hazelhoff family would like to honor Erik & Karin with a special  showing of the movie and free copies of Erik's books, as long as they  last!

Q & A afterward with Karna, Maurice and Meadow.  Please, don't forget to wear ORANGE.
