Join Puppets on the Path as they celebrate The Sounds of Niaulani through a special blend of original music and puppetry representing the native rainforest in Volcano. The performance will be on March 23, at 3 pm. in Varez Hall at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village (19-4074 Old Volcano Road).

Puppets on the Path began as a special program at the Volcano Art Center in 1983. The production has  grown to entertain audiences in schools, museums, shopping centers and sciences conventions statewide, and beyond. Their original stories of songs and puppets through the years have protrayed both marine and forest ecosystems of Hawaiʻi, from coral reefs to the rainforests.

 The Sounds of Niaulani celebrates the Niaulani Forest trail, where Ka ʻApapane sings of her life among the hāpuʻu ferns and ʻōhiʻa trees, and where young mamaki and ʻōhelo  plants sing as they grow from a rainforest nurse log.  This special blend of nature, science, music and puppetry is the hallmark of the Puppets on the Path productions which continue to bring “edutainment” to audiences of all ages.

Puppeteers and musicians include Kate Schuerch, Loren Brownlea and Dina Kageler.  This free family-friendly theater production is a part of the 50th Year Anniversary celebration for the Volcano Art Center, and is sponsored in part by a grant from the Atherton Foundation of Hawai`i.

Although this performance is free, donations are greatly appreciated.
