✨Volunteer Appreciation ✨
Did you know it takes over 50 people to put on a production from start to finish? Everyone on and off stage are volunteers and they are the reason Cherokee Theatre Company has been the longest running theatre company in Cherokee County! We love you, CTC volunteers!

Meet the Cast // Kristen Small
Kristen Small (Sheree Hollinger) Kristen is a lifelong actress with a passion for the arts and theater. She is very excited to be a part of "The Sweet Delilah Swim Club" and to be back with CTC for a fourth show! Kristen has missed the opportunity to be involved in theater due to COVID. She is so glad to be back on stage and grateful for the directors and other actresses who will help make this show a success. Her background includes "And Then There Were None," "Angel Street," Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," "Fiddler on the Roof," and "The Sound of Music." She wants to thank her husband, Josh, her parents, and her friends who have supported her in her passion for acting. She is also thankful for the support of our community and audience!
Meet the Cast // Sharon Cline
Sharon Cline (Bernadette Simms) is excited to make her Cherokee Theatre Company debut after a long hiatus of motherhood and working and grandmother hood. Some of her favorite roles were Kim McAfee in “Bye Bye Birdie,” Martha Jefferson in “1776,” Louisa in “The Fantasticks,” and the housewife in “Working.” These days Sharon is an audiobook narrator and voice over artist (sharoncline.com), and would like to thank her children, grandchildren and friends for being so supportive, love you all!
It’s Tech Week (or what we theatre people affectionately call Hell Week 😉).
It’s long days and even later nights leading up to our opening performance.
It’s making sure we’ve dotted our I’s, crossed our T’s, triple checked our props, and quadruple checked our lines.
It’s the week that our amazing volunteers show up (caffeinated) both on and off stage and give it their all — to an empty audience.
So forgive us as we tell our friends and loved ones:
“I cant, I have rehearsal.”

Meet the Cast // Sarah Fetcher
Sarah Fechter (Jeri Neal McFeeley) is thrilled to return to CTC for such a beautifully poignant comedy.

Recent favorites include Haley Quinn in Mama Won’t Fly (Southside Theatre Guild), Ida in Honk! The Musical (Elm Street Cultural Arts Village), and Mary Smith in Run for Your Wife (Lionheart Theatre). When not on stage, Sarah can be found playing instruments or watching Disney+ with her cat. She thanks God for His blessings, Geoff for his love, her family for their support, Jeannie and Wally for this opportunity, and this cast for all the laughs.
