Kahilu Theatre names Goodwin as executive director


The Board of Directors of the Kahilu Theatre Foundation has announced that after an extensive, nationwide search it has selected Deborah Goodwin as their executive director.

She joins Kahilu Theatre’s Artistic Director Tim Bostock and the professional staff and volunteers as the arts organization launches its 35th season in September.

Goodwin has lived on Hawaii Island for more than 30 years and was raised on Oahu.

She has an extensive background in non-profit management, writing, filmmaking, research, and education, serving a variety of organizations including the Nature Conservancy, Oceanic Institute, Parker School, Humboldt State University, Humboldt Arts Council, and the Morris Graves Museum of Art.

She most recently was the Director of Advancement at the W. M. Keck Observatory.

As Kahilu’s executive director, Goodwin will focus on management and the long-term sustainability of the organization.

She will also lead the development of a comprehensive education program for the theatre that will benefit both youth and adults in our community.

“We are delighted Deborah has agreed to join our team,” said Mimi Kerley, board president. “We look forward to a successful future working together to make the Kahilu Theatre the pre-eminent home for arts, culture, and community on Hawaii Island.”
