Japan’s Tokyo Sea Life Park

October 8, 9, 10, 2017

“Honu By The Sea” will return to Japan’s Tokyo Sea Life Park to celebrate the aquarium’s 28th anniversary and share its message of aloha and ocean sustainability. After a well-received debut in Japan in 2016, the cast of the internationally-acclaimed, Hawaii-produced musical will return for three performances per day on Oct. 8, 9 and 10, 2017.

The show’s own Honu ocean ambassador mascot will make appearances before the performance and the cast will perform three of seven songs in Japanese. Brand new for this year, the song “Joshiki Dayo” or “Common Sense,” tells audiences about the importance of cleaning up our trash in caring for the ocean. Honu By The Sea will complement their energetic performance with other educational elements including meet and greets with the Honu mascot and free hand-held fans, each with a printed message of ocean-awareness.

“Honu By The Sea” will perform on October 8, 9 and 10 at the following times:

• 10:00-10:25 a.m.

• 12:30-12:55 p.m.

• 3:30-3:55 p.m.

“Honu By The Sea” is a family-friendly underwater musical fantasy. The show tells the story of a Waikiki surfer-beachboy who finds a magical sea star that grants him a wish to spend a day under the sea. Kainoa the beachboy meets Malia the honu (sea turtle) along with other fascinating creatures including Hula Hoop the octopus, Shaka the crab, Nalu the toothless tiger shark and Kapper the sea horse. The Broadway-style musical provides lessons on the value of friendship and the virtues of saving the ocean environment through the magic of theater. The show features colorful costumes, lively choreography, stunning orchestration, and endearing songs that enhance the storytelling.
