Honolulu — An excerpt performance from the musical Honu by the Sea will highlight the opening of “Ka ‘ike o ka Moana: The Knowledge of the Ocean” exhibit on June 13 at 5 p.m. at Honolulu Hale.


The musical follows the adventure of a Waikiki beach boy who finds a magical sea star that lets him spend a day underwater with several amazing ocean characters. Honu by the Sea was created and composed by Johnson Enos and directed by Ron Bright.


Ka ‘ike o ka Moana is an ocean-themed exhibit featuring educational displays and art in celebration of National Ocean Month. The Waikiki Aquarium and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are providing educational displays. Ocean inspired art work by Sunday Drawing in Manoa and Friends will be on display. The exhibit runs from June 10 - 27, and is free and open to the public. Honolulu Hale, at 530 South King Street, is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


On May 31, 2013, President Barack Obama proclaimed June as National Ocean Month to “call upon Americans to take action to protect, conserve, and restore our oceans, coasts, and the Great Lakes.”  (
