New Song: Surrender to the Flow by  Mary Isis
This song came through as I was bearing witness from afar the rapid transformation of the East Rift Zone of Puna, my long time home, on the Big Island of Hawaii. Specifically, this song came through on the day the lava covered the warm ponds of Ahalanui.

We're excited to share with you an opportunity for adolescent girls on the Big Island to explore themselves and strengthen community through  Girls to Women Mentoring Hawaii , a school based mentorship program that is launching in schools in 2019. Students on island have advocated for this program, and Girls to Women Hawaii is listening and responding.

Our 17th Annual Fall Musical
Roald Dahl's  WILLY WONKA
The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka's mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantastical tale.
Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder and new songs by Leslie Bricusse ( Jekyll & Hyde, Doctor Dolittle) and Anthony Newley,  Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth.
Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka follows enigmatic candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory... or suffer the consequences.
