Educational Outreach Services

About our Outreach Activities

The UH Hilo Performing Arts Center is dedicated to providing performing arts educational opportunities to the children of our community, as well as the students at the University. We receive financial support from the community in the form of corporate sponsorships and individual memberships through our Applause! program that help fund our educational and cultural outreach programming so that we are currently able to offer the educational services that we produce connected with our Season of Events at no cost to the Big Island schools. Notices

Reservations for educational services are processed on a first-come first-served basis as space allows. Forms may be submitted by fax 932-7494 or via email to Reservations will be confirmed via email.

Schools are required to provide their own transportation to and from the events.

Please plan for your group to arrive approximately 15-30 minutes prior to your confirmed showtime so that the show can start on time.

Jamie Adkins: Circus Incognitus

Wednesday & Thursday, January 25 & 26, 2017 at 9:30am only!

Jamie Adkins is a man of considerable talent and deft wit. In his one man show Circus Incognitus, his numerous skills are on fine display as he performs acrobatic feats, juggles almost everything, negotiates a slack wire and wrangles with various props in situations both comedic and poetic. What makes Adkins' shows so relatable to his audiences is his ability to portray the ordinary man in situations that display his physical prowess alongside his charm and keen sense of humor.

Jamie Adkins performing Fliers and outreach forms for this show will be available at the beginning of January 2017. Please mark your calendars so you don't miss out on this unique opportunity!
