John Rampage & Deena Dray

It’s a new year and a new era for Diamond Head Theatre. On January 7, 2023, we featured our first onstage production for a gathering of more than 300 guests attending Raise the Curtain!, a fundraiser to support the grand opening and redevelopment of our campus. The gala included a champagne reception, first show and a sumptuous dinner starring culinary creations by Chef Chai under the stars at Kapiolani Community College.
