Happy, sad, sad, happy
By Annie Cusick Wood and the HTY Ensemble
This sensitive and uplifting play sparks curiosity about the many moods we go through and those feelings that can stick around a little longer than we expect. Created by the team that brought you The Tiny Tree, Sparkle, and Shhhhh the play features original music, delightful characters, and a story sure to awaken the imaginations of young and old alike.
Mahalo to the Hawaii State Department of Health, Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Division for their support of this show. With thier help HTY is able to take this show to preschools, elementary schools, and libraries and will produce an episode of The HIway based on this work.
