Witty, wicked and hilariously inventive, the Tony Award-winning musical A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER closes this weekend, September 14th-16th, in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT.
Returning to the HCT stage is two-time Kay Award winner Kaylyn Hall as Sibella Holland, a savvy socialite who matches wits and hearts with the murderous love of her life.
A lifelong resident of Conover and graduate of Bunker Hill High School, Hall previously appeared at Hickory Community Theatre as Sandra/Florence in THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, and as Janet Van De Graaff in THE DROWSY CHAPERONE. She also appeared at HCT as a member of the Kay Award-winning Ensembles for RAGTIME and LES MISERABLES. She is the recipient of two Willy Awards from Foothills Performing Arts, for BEAUTIFUL STAR and THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, a BroadwayWorld Best Supporting Performer in a Musical regional award for NEXT TO NORMAL (Theatre Statesville), and an Anika James Award for Outstanding High School Female Musical Theatre Singer.
"It is such a challenge for me," says Hall of A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER, which she calls "a funny show with great music." She is equally appreciative of the support she finds at Hickory Community Theatre, from cast to crew to audiences.
Performances of A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER are this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 14th-16th at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $16 for adults, $10 for youth and students.
Tickets are available online at hickorytheatre.org, 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.

A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER is produced in association with Ken Wilkinson and Hickory Allergy, Asthma & Sinus. 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.
