Building Big Dreams
We are thankful for our generous community and the permit that long ago allowed us to use the old Kula community center. Because of this our business grew and we want to give back to our community by building a true gathering place to celebrate performing arts on Maui.
Alexander Academy Performing Company, a 501(c)3 non-profit, has a dream of building an upcountry theater and studio classrooms for Alexander Academy and the greater Maui community of performing artists and organizations. This building will also serve as an emergency evacuation center and be constructed to withstand a category 5 hurricane.
