William Shakespeare's timeless tragedy of bloody ambition gets a bewitching Victorian twist in Hickory Community Theatre's production of MACBETH, on stage in the Jeffers Theatre through October 29th.
Debuting on the HCT stage with poise and pathos is Ethan Fite as Lady Macduff and Menteith.
Though Fite has only recently begun his acting journey, he has already appeared in such notable productions as FROM THIS DAY FORWARD and CYRANO DE BERGERAC at Old Colony Players. He is thrilled to be taking on MACBETH at Hickory Community Theatre, and looks forward to future HCT performance opportunities. When not dedicating time to theatrical pursuits, Fite is busy speaking with all his wit as a Tik Tok content creator with almost 150,000 followers.
Performances of MACBETH are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 27th-29th 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.
Due to the continued risk of COVID-19 in Catawba County, and in accordance with the latest guidance from the CDC, the Hickory Community Theatre encourages patrons to wear a mask or other face covering while inside the building.
MACBETH is rated PG for scenes of violence, murder and gore that may be upsetting to audience members. Please note that theatrical firearms and strobing light effects will be used during the performance.
MACBETH is produced in association with Rob and Erin Hooks. The Hickory Community Theatre’s 74th season is sponsored by Paramount Automotive, SunBelt Xpress and Frye Regional Medical Center. HCT is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
