Killin' It: Meet Ensemble member Matthew White from A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER

When a down-at-the-heel killer sets his sights on a noble inheritance, the result is an unforgettable tale of murder most musical. Come see the Tony Award-winning A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER, playing in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT from August 25th through September 16th.

Returning to the stage in this production—his second at Hickory Community Theatre—is Ensemble member Matthew White.

White has lived in the area for over 20 years, having moved here from California as a teen in 1996. He studied to be a Certified Nursing Assistant at Mitchell Community College, and is currently a self-employed caregiver residing in Statesville.

White made his Hickory Community Theatre debut as George in last season's KINKY BOOTS. He has also appeared on stage at Theatre Statesville in CABARET and A CHRISTMAS CAROL. White relishes his role in the Ensemble, which he describes as "the backbone of the show." And though he considers himself the actor most likely to fail at dance, White is thrilled to be performing alongside wife Rebecca White—as they did in KINKY BOOTS.

Performances of A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER are Fridays and Saturdays, August 25th through September 16th at 7:30 PM; Sundays, September 3rd and 10th at 2:30 PM; and, Thursday, September 14th 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.

A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER is rated PG. Some material may not be suitable for children.

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.
