Three Year Swim ClubBy Lee TonouchiDirected & Choreographed by Keo Woolford
Mainland Premier February 9 – March 11, 2012
Three Year Swim Club is inspired by the true life story of Soichi Sakamoto, who trained the youth of Maui to swim in the plantation irrigation ditches on their path to becoming Olympic champions. Set on the island of Maui in the 1930's, this heartwarming play becomes transcendent as the art of hula becomes the metaphor for competitive swimming.
In association with Honolulu Theatre for Youth.
The East West Players mainstage production is sponsored in part by a grant fund from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Featuring: Jared Asato, Kelsey Chock, Kaliko Kauahi, Blake Kushi, Mapuana Makia, and Christopher Takemoto-Gentile
