Inspiring youth through the study, performance and appreciation of theater arts.


HCT plays host to an ensemble of professional artists who bring unique vision and compelling voice to the creation of meaningful theatre for all audiences.

HCT strives to make live theatre a vital part of the childhood experience for all young people on Kauai.  Hawai’i Children’s Theatre serves more than 300 young people each year, some through the scholarship subsidy and work study programs. 10,000 children and families attend HCT performances each year.
