Killin' It: Rebecca White is Woman #1 in A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER

Witty, wicked and hilariously inventive, the Tony Award winning musical A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER plays in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT from September 1st—16th.

Returning to the Hickory Community Theatre stage, in this mischievous tale of slaying your way to the top, is Rebecca White as Woman #1.

A North Carolina native, White currently lives and works in Statesville, as a Children's Education Director at Concord Presbyterian Church. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible and Religion from Tennessee's King College, where she was also an E.W. King academic scholar.

Though White made her debut at Hickory Community Theatre in last season's KINKY BOOTS, she has numerous other area credits to her name. They include CABARET, THE JUNGLE BOOK and A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Theatre Statesville, and WILLY WONKA at The Green Room Community Theatre. Other credits include OKLAHOMA! at Barter Theatre, and THE NUTCRACKER at Bristol Ballet.

White enjoys the people and performing at Hickory Community Theatre. And while she expects to be embarrassed in front of her castmates by husband (and castmate) Matthew White, she is grateful to be performing alongside of him again in this production, as they did in KINKY BOOTS.

Performances of A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER are Fridays and Saturdays, September 1st 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.
