MAPA LIVE brings together professional directors, designers and actors to work side-by-side with community members creating theatre that enlightens, inspires, and entertains.
These blockbuster productions embody the belief that theatre is an essential and positive life force. Theatre brings us face to face with humanity, creating a bridge across barriers that arbitrarily divide us: economic disparity, religious beliefs, racial and cultural prejudices. And once we cross that bridge, it connects us and invites us to celebrate the human spirit and collectively create a shared vision for a healthy community.
With our move from Steppingstone Playhouse in the spring of 2015, we entered an exciting and pivotal time for live theatre on Maui. We are working closely with government and business leaders on Maui to create a permanent performance home in Wailuku. In the meantime, we will be exploring short-term possibilities for producing theatre in found spaces.
