People of The Holly
Where are they now?
Remember that actor you saw years ago on stage at the Holly and thought, “I bet he or she will end up on Broadway”? Well, here’s your chance to find out where all of the Holly stars have gone. Holly alumni are spread from New York City to Florida to Minnesota, and are now living lives as theater professors, parents, and business professionals, while others still call Dahlonega home.
This section is a work in progress.We will populate and update these listings as we are able. If you have info about someone, let us know. If you are an alumnus of the Holly Theater, email us your current information, how and when you were involved with the Holly, and a photo so that we can tell everyone what you have been doing since they last saw you. firstname.lastname@example.org
