Closing in on $500,000 total dollars raised in the organization’s history, the Kewaunee Young People’s Theater is in its final preparations for its Hooray for Hollywood show next weekend. Twenty-eight organizations are expected to benefit from the adult variety show this year, funding everything from student scholarships at local high schools to much-needed equipment for the Algoma Fire and Rescue Department and Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department. Kevin Dax has been participating with the Kewaunee Young People’s Theater for 25 years and says it is a great feeling to not only perform in front of full rooms over three days but also make such a large impact in the community.
Last year, the three Hooray for Hollywood shows raised more than $45,000. You can learn more about this year’s slate of weekend shows and where to buy the remaining tickets for Friday and Sunday’s shows (Saturday is sold out) online with this story.
