A Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) tribute to Eddie Aikau

Adapted from the book Eddie Wen’ Go: The Story of the Upside-Down Canoe by Marion Lyman-Mersereau

Directed by Mark Branner

This imaginative TYA production incorporates giant puppetry, dance, ‘ōlelo Hawai’i, pidgin, and hula to tell the story of Eddie Aikau’s act of courage through the eyes of sea creatures who watched from underneath the upside-down canoe. Celebrating the story of one local hero who dared to dream big and who put the lives of others before his own, this production shares Aikau’s legacy of hope and service to others. Suitable for the whole family.
