Chaperone Confidential: Meet Ensemble member Robert "Tatum" Terry

A humorously heartfelt send-up of musical theatre’s Golden Age, Tony Award-winning THE DROWSY CHAPERONE plays in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT December 2nd-17th.

Returning to the HCT stage, in this celebration of the magic of musicals, is Robert "Tatum" Terry.

Originally from Mooresville, Terry now makes his home in Hickory, where he is a supervisor at Home Depot. Terry has previously appeared on the HCT stage in MEMPHIS, THE COLOR PURPLE, A RAISIN IN THE SUN, and HAIR. Other area credits include THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, WEST SIDE STORY, CHICAGO, CRAZY FOR YOU, ON THE TOWN and OKLAHOMA.

In addition to its songs and dance numbers, Terry cites THE DROWSY CHAPERONE'S unique story—and the comedic story-telling nature of his role—as part of what drew him to the show. Mostly importantly, though, "I love the people I'm able to surround myself with" at Hickory Community Theatre.

Performances of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE are Fridays and Saturdays, December 2nd through 17th at 7:30 PM; Sundays, December 4th & 11th at 2:30 PM; and, Thursday, December 15th 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.


THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is produced in association with Shurtape. The Hickory Community Theatre’s 74th season is sponsored by Paramount Automotive, SunBelt Xpress and Frye Regional Medical Center. HCT is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
