The Charlestown Working Theater will present the second annual Creative Community Impact Award to the Kelly family, who had made significant contributions to the CWT and to the Charlestown creative community for over 15 years. The award will be presented at CWT’s Annual Comedy Fundraiser on Friday, June 5th starting at 7pm. For information please write to info@workingtheater.org.

“The Kellys have done incredible work at the CWT for so many years, we all owe them a great debt of gratitude. Melanie and Matt have organized and worked the box office for all CWT youth productions for 15 years- that’s huge! They’ve volunteered for every clean-up day. They’ve built sets. Matt also works on our website. Alexis is a graduate of our program, and during her time at CWT she was an amazing mentor to our younger guys, and she was the Assistant Director on many, many shows. She’s also a fantastic performer! Livia is a terrific actress, and operated lights for many years for the holiday shows. This year she was the Assistant Director for the holiday show – a hugely complicated job. Our entire community benefits from the work of the Kellys!”

“The CWT is a gift to the Charlestown community and to our family.” says Melanie Kelly.” Our children have grown up at the CWT where they’ve had fun, made friends, tried new things, been challenged and encouraged.   As adults we’ve welcomed the opportunity to be part of this creative and positive force.  It’s truly a second home to all of us.
