Join fellow Columbians as we watch Kurt Kanazawa CC'11 perform in Nothing is the Same at the Sierra Madre Playhouse near Pasadena. A special talkback and reception will follow the performance.
Nothing is the Same originated from the oral histories of Hawaii residents who were children living in Wahiawa, a rural Oahu village, when Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor in December 1941. The play follows four children as they try to make sense of the world--and their place in it--in the midst of intense upheaval. Loyalty is questioned and friendships are tested, but in the end they learn what it means to belong—to a group of friends, a community and a country. Click here to read more about the play.

Special Pre-Show Activity!
The theatre is holding a special pre-show activity: Hawaii "Try It" - mini workshops exploring the cultural contributions of the
Philippines, Korea, and native Hawaiians to the Aloha spirit of Hawaii, the setting for Nothing is the Same. Try a craft, learn a dance step, make a flower accessory, taste a Hawaiian treat at stations in and around the Playhouse. This event focuses on Filipino, Korean and Hawaiian native culture in hands on activities. Activity starts at 1:00 PM at the theatre.
Note: there is no Columbia-specific gathering at this show--the show and pre-show activity are open to the public.
