The Kauai Performing Arts Center received matching grants from the Hawai"i Arts Alliance for two of the last three years. This center, which creates a for credit theater program for the middle and high school students for the entire island of Kauai, has been in danger of being eliminated for lack of state funding since the beginning of the recession . When the community comes year after year to the shows they present the comments are always that their expectations were exceeded. The students relate that their learning experience was one that carried over into all areas of their lives. Many years later they say how their ability to cooperate in work situations, their language skills, etc. were all hugely enhanced by their experience in this theater program.
