2017 HART COUNTY, GEORGIA

43

With nearly 50 total years of

bringing theatrical lovers of

Hart County every emotion

that can be experienced in the

theatre, the Hart County Com-

munity Theatre offers its pa-

tron a chance to escape from

real-life and step into a world of

imagination and creativity. The

theatre provides a venue for ac-

tors, directors, and volun-teers

from all walks of life to work

together to provide live enter-

tainment for the community.

Productions average 10 to 20

people in a cast. Auditions are

open to the public and usually

consist of a reading from the

script and possibly a song se-

lection and a small dance num-

ber if auditioning for a musical.

On average, 100 people attend

each production, with that pro-

duction running for six per-for-

mances over two weekends. We

provide a minimum of four

shows per year with various

other activities and events in

between. Our 2016-2017 sea-

son included Charlie and the

Chocolate Factory, Irving Ber-

lin’s White Christmas, A Night

of One Acts, and Annie Get

Your Gun.

HCCT hosts many other

events throughout the year

such as our annual youth led

fundraiser, Harvey’s Haunted

Theatre and our annual gift to

the community, The Night Be-

fore the Night Before, which is

always December 23 and free to

the community.

“We strive to produce a good

variety of shoes, such as musi-

cals, kid’s productions, come-

dies, dramas, one-acts, etc.. Ad-

ditionally, we hold a Chil-dren’s

Workshop each summer. On

occasion, we also hold theatre

workshops for adults on such

topics as flat-building, lighting,

and other aspects of theatrical

production.” said Margaret

Sanders. “We hope to begin

Hart County

Community Theatre

holding directing work-

shops in the near future. “

From 1979 until October

of 1985, the plays and vari-

ety shows were produced

on the stage at Hartwell el-

ementary School, however,

limited space provided lim-

ited capabilities within the

production. Due to a $25

fee per evening use, the

theatre group could only af-

ford to have three rehears-

als on stage before opening

a play.

In 1983, the theatre pur-

chased and moved to the

weatherly Furniture Com-

pany building located at 83

Depot Street in downtown

Hartwell. The building had

been built as a grain ware-

house. A fund drive was

launched to raise the pur-

chase price of $30,000.

In October 1985, two

years and thousands of

hours of la-bor later, HCCT

opened to a full house. By

1987, the $30,000 theatre

project had cost in excess

of $70,000 even with the

majority of labor be-ing vol-

unteered. Now a regis-tered

historical landmark, HCCT

seats 146 patrons.

HCCT has held over 150

productions. All proceeds

are used for production

costs and building renova-

tion/maintenance. The the-

ater is a 501(c)3 Non profit

and all work is done on a

volunteer basis.

“The best part of HCCT

is the fact that we truly be-

long to and are a part of the

Hart County community,

bringing together people

from multiple generations

and neighborhoods,” said

Sanders.“We hope to con-

tinue to provide quality,

community-based theatre

for many years to come.”
