A Journey Together: Meet ANASTASIA Ensemble member Kendall Melton

A sweeping musical adventure of one woman's quest to discover her identity and her destiny, ANASTASIA plays in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT from December 1st through December 16th.

Making her HCT in this sweeping tale of fate, family and love is Ensemble member Kendall Melton.

Kendall moved to Hickory from Pittsboro, NC a year ago, and works as a nationally certified School Counselor at Oakwood Elementary School. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Shenandoah Univeristy, and a M.Ed. Degree in School Counseling from Clemson University.

Though it's been seven years since Kendall's last performance, as Grandma in a high school production of THE ADDAMS FAMILY, Kendall is embracing the moment with ANASTASIA."It is the definition of musical theatre and vocally gorgeous show," she says, and another one of the "fantastic shows [HCT] brings to our little town."

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.

Tickets are available online at, or by phone at 828-328-2283. The theatre box office is open from 12-5 PM Wednesday through Friday, or one half-hour before a performance.

ANASTASIA is rated G. All audiences admitted.

ANASTASIA is produced in association with Catawba Valley Health System. The Hickory Community Theatre’s 75th season is sponsored by Paramount Automotive, SunBelt Xpress and Green Park Dentistry. HCT is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
