About the Show

Bula! Alii! Aloha! I now know eight ways to say hello. Soooo many hellos!” Join Kāpili at his new school as he discovers the price of prejudice and the joy of learning about different cultures from his classmates. With humor, art, music and movement, Kāpili and his friends share the living legacies of their families and the happy, sad and beautiful memories of the ocean they call home. Illuminating the many rich histories of the Pacific Islands and how they are honored today, Stories of Oceania from the Honolulu Theatre for Youth celebrates the traditions that connect us all.

Kāpili and his friends share the living legacies of the Pacific Islands’ many cultures.
