9/4/2013 12:01:48 PM
The Hickory Community Theatre held their 2013 Kay Awards ceremonies Saturday (August 31) in the SALT Block auditorium. Steve Austin and William E, Morgan, who will both appear in HCT’s upcoming musical “Spamalot,” served as emcees for the event.
The evening featured entertainment from “Spamalot,” including Emily Schuttenberg as the Lady of the Lake performing “Whatever Happened to My Part”.
The top prizes went to Janet Brooks for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Judy in “9 to 5”) and Christopher Honsaker for Best Actor in a Leading Role (adult Ralph in “A Christmas Story”).
Kay awards also went to Connie Bools for Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Bananas Shaunessy in “The House of Blue Leaves”); Cody Watson for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Matthew Mugg in “Doctor Dolittle”); Olivia Jarman for Best Actress in a Character Role (Polynesia in “Doctor Dolittle”); and Steve Austin for Best Actor in a Character Role Award (Mr. Tinsworthy in “9 to 5”). Lyndsay Thomas won the award for Best Newcomer Actress for “9 to 5” and Caleb Deal was the Best Newcomer Actor for “A Christmas Story”.
The award for the Best Ensemble went to Tim Bolick, Jeff Hartman and Bob Smith, the cast of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)”.
The Samuel H. Isenhower Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Lisa Shaw. The Technical Volunteer of the Year Award went to Dan Rink for his work with Clay James on set construction and painting.
James was also presented with a special recognition for his six years of outstanding work as the Theatre’s Technical Director, a position he left at the end of the 2012-13 season when he was named as the new head of the art department at Lenoir-Rhyne University. After receiving his award he formally passed the torch to John Smith, who took over as Technical Director at the end of June.
Recognition was also given to Kent Kerley, who is Secretary of the Board of Directors. Kerley received the Presidents Award for his work the past two years on the silent auction for the annual Vacation Extravaganza. The 2013 auction raised a record-breaking $14,000.
HCT is a Funded Affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County. The 2013 Kay Awards were sponsored by Randy Carswell, CBSA Architects and The Compounding Pharmacy.
