If you're in Hawaii for Easter, a Waikiki shopping center is offering family-friendly musical theater free of charge.
Through original songs written by Hawaiian composer Johnson Enos, the musical shares the story of an underwater community imperiled by pollution.
The main character, a teenage surfer named Kainoa, is granted a wish to spend a day beneath the waves. He meets Honu, a sea turtle, who guides him through an undersea adventure.
Kainoa and the audience members learn how careless humans are unknowingly endangering the fragile ocean environment.
The colorful cast includes a crab named Shaka, an octopus named Hula Hoop and a seahorse called Kapper.
“Honu by the Sea” is scheduled to be performed at the shopping center’s outdoor gathering spot, the Royal Grove, at 2 p.m. Sunday. Seating is limited, so guests are encouraged to arrive early.
