Description

Oct. 9th and 16

Sometimes what happens after last call just might change your life. One night in 1981, just as Jamie is closing the bar where he works, a desperate last-minute customer offers him and his girlfriend Abby two thousand dollars to sit and have a drink with him. Who wouldn't take it? As the trio swaps stories and Jamie considers the decisions he faces about his musical career and his future with his girlfriend Abby. the young couple begins to realize that this older man is unusually invested in their choices... and the reason he gives them is completely unbelievable. But when a very displeased second stranger arrives, the unbelievable begins to look like it just might be true. Now and Then is a heartfelt romantic comedy about the costs of the choices we make, and the people who make them with us.

How we got started

Holton Community Theatre was accidentally founded in 2014. One summer day, Shannon Wittmer and Carolyn McKee felt that the community was missing something. They decided to offer a dinner theatre experience in October of 2014 on the evening after the yearly Holton Fall Fest.  

That first play was Cafe’ Murder. It was a horribly written play that was “tweaked” profusely before auditions took place. Originally, this event was created as a one time event, however, the success was so spectacular that another show was scheduled for summer 2015. HCT held their first summer drama camp and produced the all kid musical, The Big Bad Musical. Nunsense followed close behind and soon a theatre Facebook page and website were created out of necessity.  

Since that time, Holton Community Theatre has produced six musicals, 13 plays and has held six drama camps. We were able to purchase the empty Central school building in October of 2020 for one dollar thanks to the generosity of the USD 336-Holton School Board. HCT is committed to providing and teaching theatre to Jackson County and surrounding areas.  

So whatever happened to Shannon and Carolyn? Well, Shannon directed that first play Cafe’ Murder and became the Creative Director for HCT and Carolyn is a member of the Holton Community Theatre’s Board of Directors. It is impossible to see what the future holds without dreams.
