We are excited to once again be on the campus of Windward Community College for our summer program.

Join us for an incredible growth experience this summer.

This program is suitable for students entering grades 3-12 in the fall of 2024.

Ronald E. Bright was a Hawai`i theatre arts educator who taught for over 40 years at James B. Castle High School. He understood intuitively the importance of theatre to education and used his theatre to inspire generations of students. The I’m A Bright Kid Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization spearheaded by his former students to continue his enduring legacy of the performing arts and education.
Our summer program seeks to recreate the unique learning environment he fostered – one that nurtured thousands of students to reach their full potential both on and off the stage.
