Join us for this Groundbreaking Performance and Conversation

A groundbreaking online performance for families that explains what racism is, how to know it when you see and experience it, and ideas for what you can do about it.

HTY is proud to bring this to bring this world premiere, online theatrical experience to children and families in our community in partnership with 36 other TYA theatres across the country including: Bay Area Children’s Theatre, Alliance Theatre and Seattle Children’s Theatre as Lead Producers.

This work by all Black artists features HTY company actor, Moses Goods. His participation was funded by a generous donation from Denise and Ace Ellinwood.

HTY will be hosting a community watch party and talkback via Zoom on 

Saturday, August 1st at 2:30pm. 

The 30 minute performance will be followed by a talkback for kids and families moderated by Moses Goods and  Dr. Akiemi Glenn, Founder of the Popolo Project. 

Watch Party & Talkback

The performance is also available via Broadway on Demand, for free, all day Saturday, Aug. 1 and Sunday, Aug. 2.

At HTY we believe it is essential that all children have access to diverse voices and are appropriately included in the most important conversations facing our planet and their future.  We recognize that the stories we tell our Keiki (and those that we omit) play a tremendous role in the future they shape for themselves. With that in mind, we wanted to share some excellent resources from Theatre for Young Audiences/USA that may be helpful in starting conversations in your home.

We pledge that our organization will continue to fight systemic racism in our work, practice, and throughout the organization. We understand that diversity is not only our greatest strength as a community, but gives us an obligation to pursue and celebrate the multiplicity of voices and stories of Hawaii.
