The Kahilu Theatre Youth Troupe was formed in 2010, when theater students from a number of the schools in West Hawaii got together in a production of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown at the Waimea Community Theater. The kids decided that they wanted to continue working together and a troupe was formed. Beth has been the adult mentor from the beginning.
