Enjoy Live Theater
The Habersham Community Theater (HCT) provides live theater for the residents and visitors in Northeast Georgia. Opportunities abound to be involved as an audience member, a performer on the stage, or worker behind the scenes. Actors, directors, set and costume designers, technical crew, board members, friends, and associates are all volunteers who wish to be involved in performing arts and contribute to the cultural enrichment of the community.
Mission Statement : The mission of HCT is to provide live entertainment, to offer opportunities for personal growth through use of creative talents in drama, music, art, and dance; to contribute to the cultural enrichment of the community; and to share emotions that enrich our perceptions of life and our understanding of others.
Drama, comedy, musicals, dinner theater, readers’ theater, children’s productions, art exhibits, and special events are part of the mix of activities taking place. Currently the theater sponsors a variety of concerts and has recently sponsored presentations of one-act plays by the drama departments of the Habersham Ninth Grade Academy and Habersham Central High School.
HCT makes its home in the Historic Habersham Theater which was built as a movie theater in 1937. The theater is located at 1370 Washington Street, just off the square, in Clarkesville, Georgia.
HCT is a member of the American Association of Community Theatres, The League of Historic Theatres, The Georgia Council of the Arts, The Habersham County Chamber of Commerce and The Clarkesville Business and Community Association.
