The Hilo Education Arts Repertory Theatre, or HEART, is holding registration and auditions for its first annual tuition-free performing arts camp, “I HEART Summer,” on May 9 and 11 for performers aged 15 and older.

Callbacks will be May 12. Click here for more information, times and guidelines.

“I HEART Summer – The Grease Experience” will be a four week tuition-free summer camp for performers (singers, dancers, actors) and young people interested in technical crew (lighting, set construction, costumes) up to age 18.


The camp will run May 29 through June 25, culminating in a “camper-only” production of “Grease” performed for friends, family and the public at the East Hawai‘i Cultural Center on June 24 and 25.

Camp will run Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will consist mostly of singing, dancing and acting rehearsals to prepare campers for the upcoming performances of “Grease.” But it will also feature weekly classes in dance, improvisations, audition technique, singing and acting as well as master classes in hair and makeup and writing and directing.

In addition to the camp experience, which ends June 25, some campers will be invited to be part of the ensemble for an adult production of “Grease” which will be held at the Historic Palace Theatre and will run July 14, 15 and 16. Campers will be offered this opportunity based on their excitement, enthusiasm and professionalism during the camp process.


Registration and auditions are in-person on the day of your audition.

Please note that this is a tuition-free program but there is a $50 registration fee that covers costs of materials (scripts/music books) and additional costume needs. Also note that no camper will be turned away for lack of funds. When you sign up, request a financial waiver on your application and fees will be waived.
