THREE YEAR SWIM CLUB
By Lee Tonouchi
Directed and Choreographed by Keo Woolford

LIMITED FOUR-WEEK ENGAGEMENT:
July 27- August 19, 2012

THREE YEAR SWIM CLUB is inspired by the true life story of Soichi Sakamoto, who trained the youth of Maui to swim in the plantation irrigation ditches on their path to becoming Olympic champions. Set on the island of Maui in the 1930's, this heartwarming play becomes transcendent as the art of hula becomes the metaphor for competitive swimming.

Produced in association with Hawaiian Inter-Club Council of Southern California and Honolulu Theatre for Youth.
