Tenney Theatre

PANIOLO Stories and Songs from the Hawaiian Cowboy, opens November 2nd with Hawaiian storyteller Moses Goods returning to Honolulu Theatre for Youth to explore a remarkable period in Hawaii’s history. From Ikua Purdy winning the 1908 World Roping Championship to the way traditional Hawaiian values and practice integrated with the Paniolo lifestyle, these stories and songs will unlock a remarkable time in Hawaii’s history and will leave you with a grin as big as a rodeo.

Joining Moses onstage and in the creation of the piece is Hawaiian singer/songwriter Kapono Na’ili’ili.  Raised in Waimea, Na’ili’ili brings to life the music of the Paniolo, drawing on his own childhood experiences growing up within this culture and lifestyle.  Together the two performers paint a vibrant picture of the hardships and humor of some of Hawaii’s most notorious characters, from the arrival of the first cow to the traditions that shape contemporary life in the islands today.
