The Kahilu Theatre will be celebrating the launch of its new season on Sunday Aug. 10, with a Family Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event is free, open to the public and will include magic, music by Life in Pursuit, drop-in hip-hop, hula and ballet dance classes for kids, the finale performance of Keiki Performing Arts Workshop, baton twirling and food trucks.

The “main event” is the launch of season ticket sales and memberships for the Theatre’s 2014-2015 Season, which will be released for public sale on that day.

Life in Pursuit will play from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. from the lobby stage.

The Great Barusky will be walking through the lobby and galleries performing close-up magic, and will also perform a full magic show at noon.


The Keiki Performing Arts Workshop will be on the main stage at 1:30 p.m. KPAW is a Kahilu Theatre–hosted two-week summer camp for 24 youth. The children between 8 and 11 years old will perform songs from musical theater favorites such as Annie, Matilda, The King and I, and Mary Poppins.


Annetta Lucero will bring circus characters and baton twirling to the Kahilu. Lucero is a three-time world champion baton twirler, two-time Guinness World Record holder, a Cirque du Soleil special events artist and renowned choreographer. Her baton twirling shows will be at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Dance teachers from Kahilu’s after-school classes will offer free workshops on stage in hip hop, beginning ballet and contemporary dance.

Lanakila Mangauil will offer open hula classes on the grass outside the Theatre. Online registrations for the classes will also be open from Aug. 10.
