Kahilu Launches New Membership Program

After a year of hard work and community input, Kahilu will re-open its doors as a community hub. As part of this renewed community emphasis, the Theatre is inviting the Hawai`i Island community to invest in Kahilu by joining its new membership program.

“We’re so excited to launch our come-back season after a year of “intermission”, said Kahilu Board of Directors President, Mimi K. Kerley. “We have been working closely with the community for over a year now and have a good sense of what people want to see and do at the theatre. Launching our membership program is a huge step forward! We are really excited to create a Kahilu `Ohana that encourages people to become members of the Theatre and invest in community arts and education.”

Individual memberships will start at $35. The Theatre is also offering Student memberships for $25 and Family memberships for $50. All members will get discounts on Kahilu presented shows and other performances, discounts for education programs, subscriptions to the Kahilu e-newsletter, invitations to open house events and recognition in the Kahilu annual report. At the Supporting level of $100 and Contributing level of $250, other benefits include invitations to the Kahilu Theatre Season Kick-Off on August 2nd, free drink tickets to be used at the Kahilu Theatre bar, and invitations to an annual Backstage Party.

Kahilu Theatre has received a generous $50,000 matching grant to support its Membership drive. That means that for every new member Kahilu gets this year, the Theatre will receive a matching grant in the same amount. Kahilu hopes that individuals and families will join early and help make the $50K goal!
