Summer Workshops

From space camp, to music, to combat, Aloha Theatre is excited to offer a variety of programs for all ages this summer!

We are happy to offer a limited number of scholarships for our educational programs. To inquire or learn more, click here to send an email.

To learn more about classes offered during the school year, visit our pages for Youth Classes, Aloha Teen Theatre, and Adult Classes and Workshops.

As we continue to expand the variety of affordable classes requested via community feedback, we must maintain a minimum number of registered students in all educational events to cover facility and instructional fees. If classes or workshops do not reach the minimum, we are unable to hold that event. If a class or workshop does not have a minimum of four students registered 24 hours before the program, that class or workshop will be cancelled or postponed to a later start date.
Don’t risk programs getting cancelled, and save money! We offer discounted rates for registering early online or calling our office in advance of the event’s start date.
