Brief History of Storybook:
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).
In the 1994/95 season as well as in the 1995/ 96 season mainland shows were booked in cities in New Mexico, Iowa, South Dakota, and Michigan. Storybook is also known for creating the Rainbow Arts Festival.
