Hickory – The Hickory Community Theatre will present its 70th annual Kay Awards ceremony on Saturday night, August 10th, at 8:00pm in the Jeffers Theatre. The awards recognize the work and achievements of the hundreds of volunteers who make the work of the Theatre possible.

Named for one of the Theatre’s founding members, Kay Johnson, the awards recognize the actors, backstage crews, front of house staff, board members and the theatre’s Guild. The Guild actually hosts the event, providing a lavish buffet of finger foods and desserts, as well as serving drinks at the event’s cash bar.

The public is invited to join in the celebration and entertainment will be provided by the casts from some of last season’s musicals, as well as an advance peak at some numbers from Hair the opening production of the Theatre’s 19-20 season, which begins on September 6th.

The doors open at 7:00pm and the ceremonies begin at 8:00. This event is free and open to the public, though donations at the door will be welcome.
