Honolulu Theatre for Youth's Home performance

Honolulu Theatre for Youth returns with a brand new performance! Written and directed by Annie Cusick Wood, this 30-minute program explores the value of a shelter. What is a home? What happens when you do not have one? Two charming characters wrestle to create their own homes until they come to realize that one of the great joys of having a home is sharing it. The ten Oahu performances are made possible by a special grant from the City & County of Honolulu—Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts (MOCA).

Program is recommended for ages 3 to 5. All children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.

Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the library 10 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.
