Changing Lives Through the Performing Arts: Acting, Singing, Dance . . . and Family

The Nānākuli High and Intermediate School Performing Arts Center has produced more than
100 different productions and performances, ranging from such Broadway musicals as
"Disney's Beauty and the Beast" to dramatic plays to various musical revue shows.
 
NPAC is open to any public school student in grades 4 to 12.

Enrollment for new students is in August of the new school year.
"As a long-time professional actor, fight director, and theatre educator, I've been singularly impressed by Nanakuli Performing Arts Center's program. They offer children of all ages a caring place to grow as young artists, quality preparation for a career in the performing arts, and the experience of creating something beautiful and nurturing each other along the way. I cannot recommend NPAC enough to any young person who is interested in seeing their dreams take flight. We are proud to partner with them in offering quality professional performing arts training."
 
- Nicolas Logue, Assistant Professor, Head of Theatre at Windward Community College.
"Nanakuli Performing Arts Center does a fantastic job of teaching students skills for succeeding in their lives personally and professionally by encouraging them to discover and experience the gifts they individually possess to share with the world. I have watched students blossom and command the stage in their performances. NPAC instills confidence and stimulates curiosity and allows the student to explore and become responsible for the choices they make. They learn personal accountability and they also learn empathy and respect. No one ever really performs on a stage alone. It takes a team to support you and lift you so that you can shine in your own moment. Being a part of NPAC teaches students the importance of finding their own strengths and talents as well as learning teamwork and being part of a collective thriving performing arts group. I believe that becoming a member of NPAC encourages students and those around them to expand their experiences, develop their talents and find the confidence to conquer the world!"

". . . Schools that incorporate music, art, drama, dance . . . into the basic curriculum have found that teaching the arts has a significant effect on overall success in school.  Because the arts are closeley associated with important ideas and events inhistory, students who have a good background in the arts are likely to have a richer source of information and insight to draw upon, compared to those who do not study the arts . . .
