According to the theater, students will work together, devise and experience the creative process of bringing words on a page to life on stage.

The first program “Summer Drama Adventure” will be open to children ages 7 to 9. The second production “Tween Scene: The Rewrite” will be open to ages 10 to 13. 

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Honolulu Theatre for Youth says enrollment will be limited. The company is encouraging parents to register as soon as possible.

“We are so happy to once again offer in-person drama programs this coming summer,” shares Drama Education Director, Daniel A. Kelin, II. “A creative, play-building experience seems like a good antidote to the virtual lives we have been living.  We look forward to welcoming young participants in safe and dramatically exciting ways that will help their imaginations run free.”

Both programs run from June 7 to July 2.

Classes will be held at Tenney Theatre at the Cathedral of St. Andrew Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 

Honolulu Theatre for Youth says tuition will be $595, but discounts are available for parents enrolling multiple siblings.
