Get out from the cold and warm up with a tropical Hawaiian performance Jan. 24 and 25, 2015 at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre.
Presented in partnership with the Oahu Visitors Bureau, Honu by the Sea is a Hawai‘i-originated fantasy musical about Kainoa, a teenage Hawaiian surfer who finds a magical sea star that makes his wish to spend a day underwater come true.
Writer-composer Johnson Enos has created a family-friendly show with tunes that depict a happy under-the-sea community faced with a contemporary environmental reality: humans are making a mess of the ocean, threatening life beneath the waves.
Performed by a seasoned island cast, the production focuses on the value of friendship, partnership and the virtue of protecting and saving the ocean landscape. Every bit of litter removed makes the sea a safer and cleaner place.
Guests of the Vancouver Aquarium can enjoy the Honu by the Sea performance in the Teck Engagement gallery as part of the regular price of admission. A list of performance times can be found on the Aquarium website.
In addition to musical performances, guests can also enjoy Hawaiian themed family activities throughout the weekend and Hawaiian themed specials in the Aquarium Café.
