About The Poʻokela Awards

The formal event includes a full buffet dinner and will feature live musical performances from some of the star-studded theatre productions seen around the state this year. Masters of Ceremony will be Keoki Kerr and Jodi Leong. The Poʻokela Awards have recognized excellence in local theater since 1984. Under the Poʻokela Awards adjudication process, a panel of three adjudicators selects honorees in twenty-three different theatre arts categories spanning producing, directing, performing, design, and technical theatre.  Awards are given for excellence in each category.  The adjudicators may also recognize excellence outside these categories through discretionary awards.
