Shows Currently Available!
by Lee Cataluna
adapted from the book by Sandi Takayama
“Run, run, as fast as you can! You no can catch me, I’m one musubi man!” The pidgin-speaking Musubi Man, like the gingerbread man in the classic tale, is determined not to be eaten and he sets out on a wild journey that takes him all the way to the sea. Designed to foster young children’s pre-literacy development, the story gives plenty of opportunity for kids to interact and help with the storytelling.
Grades Preschool – K
Remembering John Blossom
by Moses Goods
There is a rich history of Blacks in Hawai‘i that dates back to the early 1800’s. But, with the exception of a few, like President Obama, most of the stories about Black lives in Hawai‘i have been all but forgotten. HTY veteran actor and playwright Moses Goods creates an enlightening one-man show highlighting the presence of Blackness in the islands from the earliest known records to the most current movements and happenings.
Grades Middle/High School
Holoholo Na- Holoholona: Animals on the Go
by Makiilei Ishihara and the HTY Ensemble
Come crawl, leap, jump, fly and sing in this exciting new theatrical adventure based on classic Hawaiian stories of animals. From the wise pueo (owl) to the fearless ‘opihi (limpet) every creature has a story to tell. Like Aesop’s fables many of our ka‘ao & mo‘olelo Hawai‘i have invaluable lessons for all keiki young and old. Lets go “holoholo” around the islands with our friends the animals (holoholona). While laughing and singing students will get an age appropriate introduction to Hawaiian language and culture.
