As part of the 17th Annual Family Fun Series, the Honolulu Youth Theatre brings IN THE YEAR OF THE BOAR AND JACKIE ROBINSON to the Playhouse Stage!
In 1947, the Year of the Boar, a young girl left China with her parents for a new beginning in America, but it was harder than she expected. Through a new love of the Brooklyn Dodgers (especially her hero Jackie Robinson), Shirley begins to feel at home. Based on the book by Bette Bao Lord and told through humor, Chinese and English, and a rich multimedia staging, the play celebrates the bravery and sacrifice of those who bring new perspectives to our country.
