The Carp Who Would Not Quit, a traveling production by Honolulu Theatre for Youth, brings traditional fables from Japan and Okinawa to life, teaching important lessons of persistence, respect and kindness.
Introducing original music, language and performance traditions from these cultures, the interactive performance is specifically developed for the youngest audiences of COCA (Center of Creative Arts). It’s recommended for children aged three to five and their families.
Founded in 1955, Honolulu Theatre for Youth is one of the oldest and most respected children’s theaters in the country. With the belief that theater is a unique, socially based form of education, it has served more than five million people through its performances and programs, which help participants and audiences walk in the shoes of others, expand their imaginations, enrich their lives and discover the infinite possibilities in the world.
