As Kahilu Theatre anxiously awaits its September start to the 35th season, the Board of Directors of the Kahilu Theatre Foundation have appointed Deborah Goodwin as its Executive Director.

Goodwin is a Big Island resident of over 30 years and was raised on Oahu. With an extensive non-profit management, writing, filmmaking, research, and education background, Goodwin has served in a variety of organizations, from the Nature Conservancy and Oceanic Institute to Parker School, Humboldt State University, Humboldt Arts Council, and even the Morris Graves Museum of Art.

In her most recent role, Goodwin served as the Director of Advancement at the W.M. Keck Obervatory.

“We are delighted Deborah has agreed to join our team,” said Mimi Kerley, President of the Board. “We look forward to a successful future working together to make the Kahilu Theatre the pre-eminent home for arts, culture, and community on Hawai’i Island.”

Goodwin will focus on management and the long-term sustainability of Kahilu Theatre in her new role, where she joins Tim Bostock, current Artistic Director, and the professional staff and volunteers. She will also lead the development of a comprehensive education program for the theatre that will benefit both youth and adults in the community.
