  • A shuttered Kahilu Theatre is seen in Waimea in August 2021 after the theater’s four-show run of “Matilda the Musical” was canceled. With an increase in statewide coronavirus infections due to the spread of the omicron variant, the Kahilu Theatre has decided to postpone in-person live performances for the time being. Still, it will continue to offer livestream shows via its reliable fallback, Kahilu TV. (Steve Roby/Special to West Hawaii Today)
