An all-consuming pursuit of power leads to betrayal, murder and madness in William Shakespeare's classic tragedy MACBETH, on stage at Hickory Community Theatre from October 21st through 29th.
Making his Hickory Community Theatre debut as troubled Scottish thane Angus, is Dylon Vogler.
Hailing from Mount Airy—hometown of famed fiddler James Benton Flippen—Vogler currently resides in Lenoir, where he also works as a Team Leader for home furnishings provider Malouf.
"I've always wanted to perform in a Shakespearean play," says Vogler of this, his Bard-inspired debut role—a role that has him acting alongside brother Will Vogler. And though new to striding the theatrical stage, Vogler has long pursued such creative interests as music, film, and comedy writing.
Performances of MACBETH are Fridays and Saturdays, October 21st through 29th at 7:30 PM; Sunday, October 23rd at 2:30 PM; and, Thursday, October 27th 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.
