Kailua Resident Survey

September 13, 2018

On Sep. 10, Alexander & Baldwin sent a survey to 16,000 residential households in Kailua, giving all area residents an opportunity to provide direct feedback about the issues facing their community and what they want for its future.

As a prominent commercial property owner in Kailua, A&B is proud to be part of this community. The survey is one component of our ongoing engagement and commitment to gather community feedback that will help inform our plans for the future of Kailua Town.

Ward Research, a respected, local, third-party research firm was commissioned to conduct the survey. Residents may fill out and return the paper survey by mail or they may choose to provide their responses online, whichever is most convenient for them.

The deadline for submitting responses is Oct. 1. We encourage Kailua residents to complete the survey. If you didn’t receive a mailer, please contact (808) 585-2309 or wrsurvey@wardresearch.com.

We will continue to have discussions with community organizations, hold listening sessions with residents, business owners and community leaders and meet face-to-face with members of the community.

Kailua Onstage Arts presents The Wolves Aug. 31 – Sept. 9

August 28, 2018

 

Kailua Onstage Arts bursts onto the scene with THE WOLVES by Sarah DeLappe

August 31 – September 9; Friday, Saturday 7:30pm, Sunday 4pm

A 2017 Pulitzer Prize Finalist, Hawaii Premiere

 

Kailua Onstage Arts launches its inaugural season with the Hawaii Premiere of The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe. A 2017 Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, this highly acclaimed play explores the lives, hearts and minds of nine high school girls on an indoor soccer team.

The production is directed by Stacy Ray and runs from August 31 through September 9, 7:30pm Fri & Sat, 4pm Sun, 50 Kihapai St, in Kailua. Tickets range from $20-$30 and are on sale online at www.kailuaonstagearts.com.

Kailua Onstage Arts is a new, non-profit performing arts company based in downtown Kailua and dedicated to presenting works that give voice to the voiceless – those who have gone mostly unheard because of their race, gender, sexuality, geographic location, or economic condition.

KOA Artistic Director Kevin Keaveney was drawn to the play and chose it as the fledgling theater’s first production because “it’s unlike anything I’d ever seen onstage. Although it’s extremely specific to the lives of these teenage girls, it’s also a universally relatable portrayal of the human experience. Conversations and events stream by in a seemingly trivial flood of mundanity, but out of that rise eddies and currents of deep philosophy, pain, humor, giddy exhilaration, and the drive to win, to survive, to persist.”

The fictional soccer team of The Wolves is comprised of nine fiercely talented young actresses: Chelsea Cox, Alyse Glaser, Grace Grange, Lily Kim-Dela Cruz, Maggie Odom, Ruby O’Malley, Camille Perry, Kira Stone, and Ka’ena Watson. All have been pushed to new heights by the demands of the play. Director Stacy Ray reports, “The cast has become a pack: dependent on one another, protective of one another, supportive and challenging of one another.  Just like wolves in the wild – no weak links allowed – all are focused on the same goal, the strength and stability of the pack.”

Playwright Sarah DeLappe’s keen ear for dialogue reveals a world often overlooked or simplified by adult writers. The script “is 100% Teenage Girls,” says director Ray. “A constant thought exchange with no subject off limits. It will remind you that each moment of life is capable of great passion, joy, laughter, and love.”
