Crazy Shirts has designed Honolulu Theatre for Youth’s first official T-shirt, highlighting the 2010-11 "Season of Science" theme. The T-shirts in adult and kid sizes can be purchased for $15 to $24 at HTY performances and select stores, and online at CrazyShirts.com, with proceeds benefiting the organization. The shirt features the HTY logo on the front, and on the back, an arrow pointing to the words "Where Do Things Go?" (the final play of the season) and other titles.
