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 through December 16th.
Returning to the Hickory Community Theatre stage in this magical musical is Ensemble member Holli Armstrong.
A Hickory resident and graduate of Fred T. Foard High School, Armstrong works as a Personal Enrichment Coordinator at Western Piedmont Community College.
Her previous HCT acting credits include THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, ROCK OF AGES, MACBETH and THE PIRATE QUEEN, to go along with her many other production and crew credits. Armstrong has also been involved in CYRANO DE BERGERAC and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME at Old Colony Players, STEEL MAGNOLIAS, MARY POPPINS and AS YOU LIKE IT at The Green Room Community Theatre, THE COMEDY OF ERRORS at Lenoir-Rhyne University, A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Theatre Statesville, and CAROLINA PUMPKINS SPELLTACULAR with Sigmon Theatrical.
When not working on or backstage, Armstrong is an avid cosplay performer—dressing up and attending conventions as famous historical, literary and pop cultural characters. She is grateful for the ongoing opportunities Hickory Community Theatre has given her to do unique material and grow as an artist.
