Race Information

Get your act together & join From the Top Theatrics for their Inaugural Top Hat 5K! Come on out for a fairly flat & fast 5K through the streets of Kennesaw with the Start & Finish in the parking lot of the AMC Theater.  From the Top Theatrics puts on performances such as The Little Mermaid, Lion King, Aladdin, etc. so come on out in costume, not required, but you'll definitely have more fun!

We've got some great shirts, commemorative Finisher Medals & Awards to the Top 3 (M & F) Overalls, Top 3 Overall Masters, Overall Grand Master, and Overall Senior Master, as well as the Top 3 in each of the normal age groups 10 & Under - 75+ for all 3 races.


From the Top Theatrics is an award winning theatre company dedicated to serving the community and providing a space for children to express and empower themselves.  We champion diversity, equity, inclusivity, and giving back through our art. For each show, we select one local charity to benefit and donate 10-25% of all ticket sales.  

We are currently growing our programs and looking to expand into our own facilities.  Our fundraising goal is a down payment on our own space to rehearse and perform!
