A sweeping musical adventure of one woman's quest to discover her identity and her destiny, ANASTASIA plays in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT through December 16th.
Making her Hickory Community Theatre debut in ANASTASIA is ensemble member Lisa Aquino. Originally hailing from the Dominican Republic, Aquino is an actress currently living in Lenoir and working as a freelance social media manager. In addition to her acting, she enjoys music, reading, and exploring. Her previous theatre credits include ANNIE, PIRATATÁ and LUCINDA PALMARES. She has also appeared in short films, web series and TV commercials.
As with the story of ANASTASIA, Aquino's journey to this production was a surprising twist of fate. "I was having coffee with a friend and she told me about the audition, so I had to give it a try." From this happy accident has come an experience Aquino will cherish. "It is a really professional, really good production."
