My first major project of 2019 was “The Epic Voyage of Kāneʻāpua”, commissioned by Windward Community College for Palikū Theatre. I had so much fun working on this piece and really connected with my young cast. In addition to writing and directing I also created the costuming and puppetry for the show. The initial run was in February but was re-mounted in April for the Palikū Arts Fest. In August I received a Poʻokela Award from the Hawaiʻi State Theatre Council for outstanding original play.
