Kathleen Henby

Kathleen Henby

Treasurer

Kathleen has been involved with the Hendersonville Theatre for over 4 years and during that time has seen it navigate and weather many transitions including the Pandemic. Currently she sits on the Board as Treasurer, but has worn many a hat here at the Theatre; including bookkeeper, costumer, set dresser, stage manager, box office, marketing dabbler, concessions, facilities you name it, she has had some kind of involvement. Through the years, she has been able to share her deep rooted passion, talents and love for the Arts and this Community by assisting local Elementary, Middle and High-schools with their Arts and Drama Programs. When she is not at the Theatre Kathleen enjoys time with her wonderful family. She anticipates great success for Hendersonville Theatre and looks forward to a fresh “re-start” in 2022. “Coming together as a group of people from all walks of life to dream, imagine, learn, give, grow, create…….now that’s beauty!”
