Calling all fans of trivia and theatre!
Hickory Community Theatre, in partnership with Anita Doran, Andy Straw and John Duke, will be hosting a night of food, drink and live trivia fun on Thursday, March 23rd at 7:30PM at Duke’s Restaurant and Wine Bar.
Guests are invited to organize teams of up to six people for the trivia contest. Paul Sapp will be Trivia Master for the contest, which will consist of three rounds of ten questions, testing teams on their knowledge of current/historical events, “famous theatrical disasters”—from Macbeth’s curse to Broadway flops—and other topics. For example:
Which of the following shows was NOT an actual sequel to a Broadway musical hit?
a) ANNIE 2: MISS HANNIGAN'S REVENGE
b) BRING BACK BIRDIE
c) EAST SIDE STORY
d) LOVE NEVER DIES
(See answer below.)
Prizes, including complimentary tickets to HCT season performances and a Duke’s gift card, will be awarded to the three top-scoring teams. (Along with trivia bragging rights.) There will also be HCT-branded swag for all participants. Food and beverage will be available for purchase during the event.
The event will take place in the Main Cellar City Club room on Thursday, March 23rd at 7:30PM at Duke’s Restaurant and Wine Bar, located at 35 Main Ave SW, Hickory, NC 28601. (The room is located on the floor below the main dining space. Please consult with Duke’s staff or HCT representative upon arrival for guidance.) Admission is free and no reservations are required.
