ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
The Storybook Theatre of Hawaii has been an active member of the touring performing arts community in the State for seventeen years, even before incorporation in 1986 as a tax-exempt non-profit organization. Every year that a touring production is performed, approximately 25,000 pre-school and school-age children directly benefit.
Storybook has created more that 40 original touring productions from every major culture represented in the State, has toured extensively on every Island, and is a recognized name in the world of good storytelling for children in Hawaii. Touring programs have also reached the Cook Islands in the South Pacific where on three separate tours more than half of the countries population was reached (6000 people).
The purpose of The Storybook Theatre of Hawaii is to enable Hawaii’s school children to experience and participate in the performing and media arts; SBTH also perpetuates the cultural values and heritage of the peoples of Hawaii and the Pacific.
