About 100 people attended the Kahilu Theatre Foundation community open house at the theater on Saturday April 13.
“We want the community to feel welcome at the theater all the time,” said Mimi Kerley, board chairperson.
Inspired by the Honokaa Jazz Band, an art exhibit, spirits, ono hors d’ouvres and chocolate, open house attendees were asked to vote on artists that they would most like to see perform at the theater. At the event, the board discussed their community-centered mission. They said their goal is to include the community as part of the decision-making process, and to create a theater that is recognized as a hub of the community.
After opting to take an “intermission” from programming for the 2012-2013 season to address outstanding debt and to examine the future, the board is establishing long-term, sustainable funding from a number of sources, including grants, state capital improvement funding and private donors.
