KIRK D. HENNY

08th Jan 2017 Managing Director

Kirk Henny began his theatrical experiences at James Madison University (JMU) where he starred in student-written productions as favors for friends who were theatre majors. That “acting bug” caught hold of Kirk, which led him to take advanced courses in the JMU Theatre Department and ultimately led him to performing roles in plays such as “Fences” and “Two Trains Running.” In Atlanta, Kirk continued to perform in theatrical and film productions. His initial Atlanta theatrical experiences included roles in plays such as “Journeys Through a Modern Past” (Hazard/Us Productions) and “The Amen Corner.” Soon thereafter, Kirk landed other lead/major roles in numerous productions such as “Pill Hill” (New African Grove Theatre), “In Lieu of Flowers (Lionheart Theatre), and “Flyin’ West.” Kirk expanded his career to include theatre administration. In 2012, Kirk co-founded and served as Managing Director of Rising Sage Theatre Company. During his tenure, Rising Sage Theatre premiered several new critically-acclaimed plays such as “The Best Game” (by Paris Crayton III), “Class Act” (by Rich Rubin), “Brothers of Affliction” (by Paris Crayton III) among many others. Kirk is excited to making his Dominion Entertainment debut as Managing Director for the production of “A Lesson Before Dying.”
