HPU's 'The Dead' adds Sunday show

Because of sold-out houses, Hawai'i Pacific University has added a performance of James Joyce's "The Dead" at 8 p.m. Sunday at the HPU Theatre in Kane'ohe.

That will be the closing performance for the musical, which also is being presented at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 4 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets: $14, $10 for seniors and military.

Reservations: 375-1282.

BBS All-Stars plan W concerts

BBS All-Stars, a pop-reggae supergroup comprised of musicians from UB40, Nori Nori, the original Sunshine Band and Sly Stone, will give benefit performances at 10:30 p.m. tomorrow, 10 p.m. Friday and 10:30 p.m. Saturday at the W Honoluuhotel.

The Universal/AAG recording artists will be raising money for victims in Hawai'i, including those who lost jobs or took pay cuts in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks. Besides a performance, there will be a charity auction.

The band includes Robbie Morningstar, Patrick Roger, Julian St. Rose and Patrick Tenyue.

The attacks led to cancellation of the planned Sunsplash tour, but the band since has appeared in dozens of charity shows helping raise $1.3 million for Sept. 11 victims.

Its latest tune, "Sing Our Own Song 2001," is a remake and reworked version of the 1986 UB40 hit, with proceeds going to Sept. 11 victims.

Doors open at 8 p.m.; there also will be an opening act. Tickets: $15

Information: Komo Low at 754-6964.
