FALL SEMESTER focuses on developing students’ skills as actors – the art of being present in the moment, of becoming another, of communicating clearly and truthfully, and of being committed to the work of acting. Students will develop their own cultural voice by writing their own short story. The semester culminates with a Reader’s Theatre style production, in which every student has a primary speaking part in Radio Show style theatre performances at the WIT Theatre in Lihu’e and Historic Waimea Theater.

SPRING SEMESTER focuses on developing students’ skills in musical theater. In addition to acting, students will develop their musicality through song and dance.
Musical theater also develops strong collaborative skills as students work in harmony to convey a story through dramatic acting, singing, and movement.
Students work with the director, choreographer, and musical director to produce a full-length musical theater production. Students will audition and be cast as leads, supporting characters, or ensemble members. Students will also analyze the plot, characters, setting, and the cultural context of the musical.
This story takes place in the largely Hispanic-American neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City.
Auditions for the 2020 KPAC Spring Musical In the Heights take place December 9-13. The singing and monologue auditions are held Monday-Wednesday by appointment. Dance audition on Thursday is mandatory for everyone. Call backs are by invitation on Friday. Please view the audition schedule here.
