The Leeward Theatre:
Connecting & Creating Community for 44 Years
Our ultimate goal here at The Leeward Theatre is to build community through live performance. The more of our community that is allowed to access our events the more likely it is for young people and other individuals to take action to improve their community. Creativity is life affirming - no matter the quality or value of what was created. It is a step toward life; toward adding something to the world that did not exist before. The Leeward Theatre exists as a place where creativity is practiced on a daily basis - where students, community members, and trained artists can engage with an empower one another. Each of us has a different reason to feel connected to The Leeward Theatre and that is what makes it so special. Maybe that first connection was made after a moving or powerful show; maybe it was because you were a performer who once “crossed the boards” here; or maybe it was because you took a class here at Leeward and it inspired you to keep live performance in you heart and in your life. This is not just a building on a college campus - it is a living and breathing extension of the community. It is a place with the power to inspire, the power to enlighten, and the power to educate. We take our responsibility to you - and to your memories and loyalty to the place - seriously. We want to ensure that The Leeward Theatre is around for another 40 years, and that you, your family, and your friends will be there with us.
The Leeward Theatre is undergoing a major renovation thanks to the generous support of the Legislature, the Governor, and the University of Hawaii. Although we have a reduced season, we are not completely dark. Come check out the offerings we have in our 44th season!
