JERRY'S BACK FOR "LARAMIE" AT MVT: Veteran actor-director Jerry Tracy, left, shared a bench with cast mates Kyra Poppler and Matthew Johnson as they enjoyed the post-show party celebrating the successful opening of "The Laramie Project" at Manoa Valley Theatre on Wednesday. Tracy is making a welcome return to MVT one year after his memorable performance in "The Cripple of Inishmann." Poppler and Johnson both do standout work in their first MVT shows.

"GREAT JOB, GUYS!": John Rampage, right, congratulated Dion Donahue, Roslyn Catracchia, Kim Anderson and Jennifer Waldman after "The Wizard of Oz" received an opening-night standing ovation at Diamond Head Theatre on Friday. The cast and crew partied till midnight at Jose's Cafe in Kaimuki.

WONDERFUL "VOICES": Jerome Grey, center, relaxed with family after their "Voices of Samoa" concert at Kapono's on Saturday. Sons Taumata, left, and Tinifuloa, right, performed with him as well as with their own groups. Daughter Sisavaii Grey-Uiagaleleil, left, sang backing vocals, and Anamativa, right, danced as the Taupou in a traditional Taualuga and rocked the house sitting in with Taumata's band, Natusol. Sisivaii's husband, Tyman, and Tini's wife, Angela, helped backstage.
