The Magical Pū Stealer is a re-telling of the traditional Hawaiian mo‘olelo of Puapualenalena, a magical shape-shifting dog tasked with bringing peace to Waipi‘o Valley. This world premiere play delivers laughter, but also powerful life lessons.

“With so many students of Hawaiian ancestry on our campus, it seems natural that our youth theatre offerings should bring mo‘olelo to the stage. It’s important for young people to see their own culture on stage and watch dramatizations of these stories. It creates pride, passes on traditional ideas, and empowers the audience.” 

 “This year’s cast is composed of a handful of our best and brightest who have taken every theatre course we offer and are really honing their craft. Their performances are proof of the acting training we offer here at Windward.”  —Nicolas Logue, WCC Theatre Instructor
