A hilarious whodunit and winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical, A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER plays in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT from September 8th through 16th.
Returning to the Hickory Community Theatre stage in this stylish homage to music hall mysteries is Terry Evans as Man #2. A Newton resident for over three decades, Evans works in Customer Service at Cox Enterprises. He earned his Musical Theatre degree at Western Carolina University, and when not working or performing he enjoys reading, hiking and photography.
Evans previously appeared at Hickory Community Theatre in NEWSIES. Other area appearances include CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG at The Green Room Community Theatre, COMPANY at Theatre Statesville, FROG AND TOAD at Springer Opera House, and separate productions of THE WIZARD OF OZ at Theatre West Virginia and The Green Room Community Theatre.
Evans cites the "amazing quality of productions" at Hickory Community Theatre as an ongoing source of inspiration. Though he considers himself the actor who takes the longest to learn choreography, Evans is delighted to be singing and stepping lively in this current HCT show.
