The Leeward Theatre: Connecting & Creating Community for 43 Years

Our ultimate goal here at The Leeward Theatre is to build community through live performance. The more of our community that is allowed to access our events the more likely it is for young people and other individuals to take action to improve their community. Creativity is life affirming – no matter the quality or value of what was created. It is a step toward life; toward adding something to the world that did not exist before. The Leeward Theatre exists as a place where creativity is practiced on a daily basis – where students, community members, and trained artists can engage with and empower one another. Each of us has a different reason to feel connected to The Leeward Theatre and that is what makes it so special. Maybe it was after a moving or powerful show; maybe it was because you were a performer who once “crossed the boards” here; maybe you had your first crush on an actor or actress backstage; or maybe it was because you took a class here at Leeward and it inspired you to keep live performance in your heart and in your life. This is not just a building on a college campus - it is living breathing extension of the community. It is a place that has the power to inspire, the power to enlighten, and the power to educate. We take our responsibility to you - and to your memories and loyalty to this place - seriously. We want to ensure that The Leeward Theatre is around for another 40 years, and that you, your family, and your friends, will be there with us.

The Leeward Theatre is currently undergoing a major renovation thanks to the generous support of the Legislature, the Governor, and the University of Hawaii. Although we have a reduced season, we're not completely dark. Almost all of the productions are currently scheduled to happen in our new “Alternate Space” (formerly room AM-101). Come check out the fantastic offerings we have for our 43rd Season!

For our Spring 2018 Semester of Shakespeare we will be producing the beautiful and controversial Merchant of Venice. In this lively comedy of love and money in sixteenth-century Venice, Bassanio wants to impress the wealthy heiress Portia but lacks the necessary funds. He turns to his merchant friend, Antonio, who is forced to borrow from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. When Antonio's business falters, repayment becomes impossible—and by the terms of the loan agreement, Shylock is able to demand a pound of Antonio’s flesh.  Portia cleverly intervenes, and all ends well (except of course for Shylock).
