AUGUSTA – The Augusta Colonial Theater today announced the promotion of Cathy Milojevic-Kaey to Interim Executive Director. Milojevic-Kaey takes over the position from Kathi Wall who served as the Executive Director for four years.

“Cathy has been working alongside Kathi Wall for the past seven months, so she is up to speed on all the innerworkings of the Colonial Theater, and has been able to hit the ground running for us already.  Cathy’s recent graduation from the Kennebec Leadership Institute has given her terrific access to the greater Kennebec Valley community and will be very valuable to us as we continue to move this project forward.” said Andrew Silsby, Board Chair of the Augusta Colonial Theater.

Milojevic-Kaey joined the Augusta Colonial Theater in May 2023 as the Executive Assistant. In this position, she was instrumental in launching the theater’s quarterly newsletter and organizing events and fundraising efforts.

Prior to this position, Milojevic-Kaey worked in education for over 25 years.

Wall, who retired from her position as the Executive Director earlier this month, was voted in as a member of the Board of Directors and will continue to serve as an integral piece of the restoration of the theater.

“We are thankful for Kathi Wall’s efforts over the years and very pleased that she will continue to provide advice and counsel by joining the Board of Directors,” said Silsby.

“There is a developing arts and cultural corridor that stretches from Gardiner to Waterville. I want Augusta to be a central part of that corridor and I am willing to continue to work hard toward that end,” said Wall.
