Work With Us
Did you know that Kumu Kahua Theatre is primarily a volunteer-driven organization? We are honored to be a part of this amazing theatre and would love to have you join us.
What would you like to do? Are you an artist, an organizer, a customer service master or a back-office dynamo?
We have volunteer orientations several times a year – please contact us to learn more. We look forward to working with you!
When you’re ready to come to scheduled auditions:
- Auditioners should arrive early on either day and stay for the whole time.
- Call the Kumu Kahua Theatre box office at 536-4441 for more information.
Kumu Kahua Theatre was founded on the notion of playwright development, focused on this place and her people. We continue to develop artists of many ilk, but script artistry is our core.
We offer script-writing classes each summer. Please see our classes page for complete information on upcoming classes.
Each year, Kumu Kahua Theatre conducts a playwriting contest with three categories:
- Plays set in Hawai`i
- Plays set in the Pacific Rim
- Plays of any topic, written by residents of Hawai`i
Typically, this contest will attract 30+ new scripts from as many playwrights in various stages of their writing careers. Winning playwrights receive cash prizes and are regularly offered the opportunity to see their scripts included in a future Kumu Kahua season.
Do you have a script or two in you? To learn more about submitting your script for consideration, contact us!
Congratulations! By virtue of the fact that you’re looking at this page, we know you care about Kumu Kahua Theatre and our mission – and that makes you pretty wonderful.
There are many ways to partner with us to cross-promote and facilitate growth and stability for everyone involved. We’re anxious to talk with you about all that we can do together.
If you choose to sponsor Kumu Kahua, you will have the ultimate advertising opportunity for any great establishment in Hawai`i: placement as a partner of Hawai`i’s only theatre solely devoted to producing plays about life in Hawai`i, plays by Hawai`i’s playwrights and plays for Hawai`i’s people.
