The Hickory Community Theatre has been around since 1948 when the Hickory Recreation Department employed Kay Johnson to form a theatre group. Her beginnings started as a series of radio dramas airing on WIRC. In 1949, informal meetings, encouraged by the Kramer family, led to the formation of what was then known as The Hickory Little Theatre. The first production was an evening of one-act plays that went off with a bang, thus forming their full-length productions.
