Junior Tesoro stars as Maui in Honolulu Theatre for Youth's play "Maui vs. Hercules."
Maui and Hercules square off
Hawaiian and Greek myths collide in "Maui vs. Hercules," a battle of the titans, as staged by the Honolulu Theatre for Youth and playwright Yokanaan Kearns. Maui has just used his magic hook to fish up a new island where he can be king. Tired of being told what to do, his first decree is to outlaw all hula practice. But just as Maui is getting settled, Hercules arrives looking for an island where he can rule without being pestered to practice his poetry. What follows is a hilarious competition filled with dangerous quests, surprising twists and a visit from a mysterious woman who seems to know a little too much about both of them. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
