Live on the Marquee, Love Where You Live!


By Hutchinson’s Historic Fox Theatre


HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Hutchinson’s Historic Fox Theatre, in collaboration with Hutchinson’s Community Foundation, is thrilled to announce live performances set atop the iconic Fox Theatre marquee during Match Day, on Wednesday, May 1!

A theme of this year’s Match Day is “Love where you live,” and members of the public are invited to demonstrate their love by coming to the Wiley Building, 100 N. Main St., Hutchinson, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 1 to give to their choice of 38 Reno County nonprofit organizations. Those gifts will be met proportionately from the community foundation’s $100,000 matching pool. All gifts will benefit the organizations’ endowed funds.

“Match Day has always been about building the long-term sustainability of local nonprofit organizations by helping to build their endowed savings accounts,” said Aubrey Abbott Patterson, community foundation president and CEO. The support from strong endowments helps nonprofits spend more time focused on their missions, she said.

“We’re excited to be a part of Match Day this year, as it greatly helps build our endowed funds,” shared Josh Davies, Executive Director of Hutchinson’s Historic Fox Theatre. “Our aim is to cultivate a sense of community by featuring local musicians performing atop the marquee during the event,” Davies elaborated.

Local Hutchinson musician, John Depew, will ascend to the marquee beginning at 11:30 AM, treating us to a combination of original songs, and a mix of music by other bluegrass greats. His set will wrap up at 1:00 PM.

Then, starting at 3:30 PM, local saxophonist, Ralph Brown and keyboardist Doug Kaufman will take their turn atop the marquee. “I’ve never been on top of the marquee, I guess I can add that to my resume!” stated Ralph Brown.

While the Match Day event itself is not affected by weather, the outdoor marquee performances are subject to weather conditions.
