Peace On Your Wings Los Angeles debut

Posted by Andrea Boccaletti on

The Ohana Arts Group opened their play 'Peace On Yours Wings' at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center on September 18th to a large crowd including people from all backgrounds and several school groups. This play was written by Jenny Taira and Laurie Rubin and is inspired by the life and tragic death of Sadako Sasaki, a 12 year old Japanese girl who died of radiation exposure from the nuclear bomb blast in Hiroshima. Sadako represents many innocent victims of war who would also die from this radiation exposure. 

The group of kids from the Ohana Arts Group and from several schools in Hawaii who make up the cast put a lot of heart and soul into this musical production and are very talented. The all youth cast take us on a journey of friendship, heartache, trust, loyalty and love as they go through the trials and tribulations of adolescent life while experiencing the loss of a dear friend. However, the children manage to come together, put their differences aside and spread the message of peace around the world.

I strongly urge you to see this play and to take your kids if you have them, tickets can be purchased for Saturday, September 19th matinee and evening performances at jaccc.org
