MAYOR’S OFFICE OF CULTURE AND THE ARTS AWARDS $20,000 GRANT TO

HONOLULU THEATRE FOR YOUTH

 

            Mayor Mufi Hannemann has awarded a $20,000 City grant to the Honolulu Theatre for Youth for its 2006-2007 season.

The grant provides support for the production of at least five free community performances as an extension of the Honolulu Theatre for Youth’s educational outreach programs. These performances will take place between October 2006 and June 2007. The grant was awarded by the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts (MOCA).

            “The Honolulu Theatre for Youth has exemplified strong dedication to provide wonderful plays for the enjoyment and enrichment of children and their families throughout the community,” said Mayor Hannemann. “We are proud to be a part of their continued efforts.”

            Funding from MOCA will help the Honolulu Theatre for Youth in its efforts to increase public attendance and to expand its reach to audiences who otherwise don’t or are unable to attend performances at the theatre.
