HTY Brings Beloved ‘blue’ Back to the Stage for Toddlers
By popular demand, Honolulu Theatre for Youth presents blue, a humorous, whimsical short play for the littlest of theatre patrons by Annie Cusick Wood which first premiered at HTY in 2012. Show times are Saturdays November 5, 12 and 19 at 9:30 and 11: 30 a.m., at Tenney Theatre on the grounds of The Cathedral of St. Andrew. (The 11:30 a.m. performance on Sat., Nov. 12 will be ASL-interpreted.)
The show introduces the ideas of tolerance and diversity in an age-appropriate theatrical experience. It is the story of Inky Blue and Pale Blue, content and happy in their all-blue world. One day, color comes into their lives—different, scary...and ultimately quite wonderful! “I hope that this production will give children the courage to try something new,” Wood says, “and a curiosity for the rich world around us.”
blue is directed by Annie Cusick Wood and features professional HTY company actors Maile Holck and Junior Tesoro. Set, costume and props designer is Karen Keifer; sound design is by Max Louie.
blue is ideal for ages 3 and up. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors (60+) and $10 for youth (3-18). Tickets at 839-9885 or online at www.htyweb.org.
