Youth Classes (Ages 2-12)

At Aloha Theatre, our classes are designed for children to learn real world skills through creative approaches.

We are happy to offer a limited number of scholarships for our classes and workshops. To inquire or learn more, click here to send an email. For scholarship inquiries, please send an email by clicking here.

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.

Josey Creger, CREATE’s Little Theatre Club Instructor and “Granny” in the current production of Into The Woods will lead Monday through Wednesday in character-building activities including acting, improvisation, and stage combat (foam gear provided)! Then on the final two days, Alexis Gaines, a Musical Theatre/Jazz/Ballet teacher from Kona Dance and Performing Arts, will take over with more performing arts fun through advancing character work, movement, and music! A brief “share and tell” showcase will be performed for the participants’ invited friends and ohana on the final class day on the Aloha Theatre stage.
