Disasterpiece Theatre: Meet THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG'S Justin Wilson

A hilarious whodunit filled with mystery, mishaps and theatrical mayhem, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG runs in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT from March 17th through April 1st.

Returning to the Hickory Community Theatre stage as Trevor, the testy tech-turned-unlikely understudy, is Kay Award winner Justin Wilson.

Wilson, a Lincolnton native, has lived in Hickory for the past five years while studying Theatre at Lenoir-Rhyne University, and currently works as a waiter at Olde Hickory Station.

Wilson previously appeared at Hickory Community Theatre as Gangster #2 in THE DROWSY CHAPERONE. He made his HCT debut as Robin in SOMETHING ROTTEN, winning a Kay Award for Outstanding Character Male, after which he appeared as an Ensemble member in THE PIRATE QUEEN. Other area credits include LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at Little Theatre of Gastonia, and NEXT TO NORMAL at Lenoir-Rhyne University.

For Wilson, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG at HCT represents another opportunity to be around the "very talented people" at HCT who continue to help him grow as a person and an artist.

Performances of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG are Fridays and Saturdays, March 17th through April 1st at 7:30 PM; Sunday, March 19th and 26th at 2:30 PM; and, Thursday, March 30th 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 PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is produced in association with CommScope and Green Park Dentistry. 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.
