A resilient young woman sets out to discover her past with the help of two con men, in an enchanting adventure that journeys from post-Revolution Russia to Paris in the Belle Époque. The Broadway smash hit ANASTASIA plays in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT from December 1st through December 16th.
Making her HCT debut in this majestic production is Ensemble member Emma Evans.
A Hickory native, Evans is a second year student working on an Associate's Degree in Art at Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute. Among her many interests are playing ukulele, reading classical literature, and the music of Whitney Houston. Evans is also an avid runner who recently ran a 50K race with her father.
"I grew up watching ANASTASIA and I always loved her," Evans says of her affinity for the 1997 animated film. "I wanted to be like her." Now, in her first foray into acting, Evans is excited to be learning about the importance of ensemble work in a theatre she treasures for its creative shows.
Performances of ANASTASIA are Fridays and Saturdays, December 1st through December 16th at 7:30 PM; Sundays, December 3rd and 10th at 2:30 PM; and, Thursday, December 14th at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $16 for adults, $10 for youth and students.
