Musubi Man by the Honolulu Theatre for Youth

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 - 3:00pm - 3:30pm
Aina Haina Library

“Musubi Man,” a local-style version of “the Gingerbread Man,” is based on a play written by Lee Cataluna. Like the gingerbread man in the classic tale, the Musubi Man is determined not to be eaten. He leads his pursuers on a merry chase until reaching the ocean and must match wits with a surfer. The surprise ending will feature a unique Hawaii “twist” to the story.
