Dream Big - Nānākuli at the Fringe

About This Episode


In 2011, students and alumni from the Nānākuli Performing Arts Center on Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi traveled to Scotland to perform at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Learn how this group, who hailed from what was once considered the "worst" school in Hawaiʻi, came to proudly represent the United States in the largest art festival in the world.

When a lack of funds threatened to keep students from going to Scotland, the Hawaiʻi community rallied behind them. The resulting journey proved to be emotional and life-changing for everyone involved.
