Speaking of the pending production of All My
Sons, HPU theatre manager Andrew Meader pointed out that “We
have five weekends of shows for a total of 19 performances.”
Each of those performances includes an intermission during
which about 80 audience members prowl the halls of the Hawai‘i
Loa campus academic center looking for something to drink and
Sure, Meader added, there are vending machines, but traditionally
students from the theatre program have set up in the hall outside
the theatre and sold punch and candy—for a profit.
Last year, ASHPU set up during intermissions, and this semester,
according to Meader, all interested HPU student organizations
are invited to fundraise.
The commitment,” Meader said, “is to have the group
members be there just before intermission, to set up and then,
through intermission to sell.”
Groups do not have to put out any money for sales inventory,
Meader explained, and they will not be stuck, after intermission,
with unsold inventory. The theatre will provide the sales
inventory. After intermission, the group will pay the theatre
cost of items sold and pocket the profit.
