Have a keiki looking for activities in the theatre? Our Spring Break Workshop and 4th quarter classes are now open for registration! To find out more, visit the Youth Classes page.

As we continue expanding 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 six students registered 24 hours before the program, that class/workshop will be canceled or postponed to a later start date.
Don’t risk programs getting canceled, and save money! We offer discounted rates for registering early online or calling our office in advance of the event’s start date.
