Here's some happiness
Aloha Kahilu 'Ohana,

Kahilu Theatre is especially proud of our Arts Ed programs that inspire young people to find their purpose and joy through the arts. Today we share a gift of “Happiness” from students and alumni of our Kahilu Youth Troupe.

CLICK HERE to hear their song for you.
The performers who begin the recording are the original members of the troupe. They first performed in You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown in Waimea in 2009, and this song was featured in the production.
Then there’s the next generation of troupe members who are in college now. Finally, the current troupe members are the younger kids who take classes with us now, even as we stay apart, keeping together by Zoom.
Original troupe members Paul Gregg and Marena Dunnington put this production of “Happiness” together. It took about 12 hours of work between collecting the videos, mixing the sound, lining everything up, and deciding which performers went where.
Almost all of the original troupe members have gone on to pursue professional careers in theatre arts, and they often come home to Kahilu for our productions, and to teach in our classes and camps.
As Board member Beth Dunnington describes, “I’m so proud of them. I hope you are too. I’m proud that they got their training on our Kahilu stage and in our classes.”
Here’s to Happiness!
