Welcome to HTY’s new Membership program. Keep scrolling down to find out more or click here to pick the perfect plan for your family.
What do our members get?
Each month you’ll recieve new creative content and invitations only available to members. Eventually, when we can gather safely your membership will include tickets to live events and discounts on in-person classes as well.
From videos on Social-Emotional-Learning to study guides all of our content supports learning outcomes while never being dull.
Access to Creativity
The theatre arts cultivate vital problem-solving, cooperation, and empathy skills. Plus, playing theatre games or watching an episode of The HI Way, an HTY experience can brighten your family’s day.
We will produce a five-show digital season as part of this year’s membership alongside our episodic show The HI Way.
All of our content is created by and for families in Hawaii. If you love learning more about Hawaii this is for you, no matter where you live.
Each month you will get a list of events, suggestions and invitations specific to you and your family. Enjoy them on your schedule!
We are a company of local professional theatre artists and educators who deeply love and want to keep serving this community. Your support makes this possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
We are sure you have questions. We do too. This is new territory for all of us, but we are going to try to take good care of our ohana as we figure it out.
Does this take the place of season tickets?
Yes! The membership will include all of our digital offering for the 20/21 season, these will include five, hour long theatrical offerings, digital access to our television show The HI Way, access to lots of educational materials, including an upcoming series on Social Emotional Learning. This will also include invitations to live zoom events with the company and when we are able to safely gather, your monthly membership will include tickets to live HTY performances.
We are still figuring out details and will be making adjustments but our goal is to offer high quality local programming that is educational, entertaining and speaks to your family.
What age is perfect for a subscription?
Just like our normal programming, we will make content for a variety of audiences ages 3 and up. Most of our work focuses on the elementary-aged students but there will be offerings that appeal to older audiences as well. We have many adults who subscribe to HTY and come without children and we hope that will be the case for our memberships as well.
Are there different benefits for different levels?
The individual and family levels are exactly the same, those levels relate to the number of folks watching. Every level of membership will have access to core HTY programming, but there will eventually be some additional events and mahalo perks for the higher donor levels.
Can I gift a membership?
Absolutely. This is a chance for us to connect and share. Grandparents may want to share a membership with a family on the continent, a different island, or someone next door. You can gift one month, three months or a whole year of laughter and local content to anyone with an email!
What does my membership support?
All of HTY’s staff, actors and educators are paid professionals living and working in Hawaii. Your continued support means that we will be able to continue serving Hawaii’s families, teachers and students now and into the future. We are proud of our Platinum Rating on Guide Star as it signifies that every dollar you invest in HTY is put to good use supporting our local mission and serving our community.
What if our family can't afford a membership?
We want this programming to be accessible to everyone. If $25 is too much for your family please sign up for an individual membership and use it for your family. If that is also too much please contact us and we will work with you to make sure no one is left out. Likewise, if you are able to subscribe at one of our donor levels it will allow us to provide this content to more families, teachers and young people across the islands.
Can I cancel or upgrade my membership?
Yes, at any time. Your membership starts on the day you sign up, and you are billed on that day every month. Just send us an email, call or you can cancel or upgrade directly through the web site.
What devices can I use?
The media player we are using should work on any device and ensures that you are getting a fast download and high quality image across multiple platforms. Computers, tablets, smart televisions and even phones will play HTY content right from our website.
Is there technical support?
Absolutely! You can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I share my link with friends and family?
We absolutely want you to tell your friends and family about the program, but we do ask that you keep the link within your immediate family. If there is a specific program people are interested viewing, we have priced memberships so people can easily sign up and cancel after a month. If you would like to invite someone to join, you can give a gift membership at $10 or $25 for the month. If cost is a barrier please let us know, as we want to make sure everyone can access the content. We appreciate your understanding as it will insure that we can continue to pay our artists and educators for all their hard work.
Can we watch programming again and again?
Yes, members will have access to the content for the entire time it is “playing” on our website.
Or maybe you still have questions?
We would love to hear from you and answer any questions about membership, the company or simply say hi. We look forward to hearing from you.
