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 from October 14th through 29th.
Making a spirited return to the HCT stage as Macduff's Daughter is Sadie Sapp.
Sapp, a feisty Fifth Grader and honor roll student, made her theatrical debut at HCT as Angel Choir in THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER. She more recently appeared in BUGSY MALONE and THE LITTLE MERMAID JR., both at HCT, and in a traveling production of THUMBELINA for The Green Room Community Theatre.
When not doing school work, Sapp is enrolled in courses at Hickory Ballet & Performing Arts. At home, Sapp enjoys reading, knitting, baking, and being a big sister to her younger brother Riley.
Though Sapp credits (or blames) director Eric Seale for luring her into auditioning, she appreciates the time she gets to spend with HCT ambassador Sir Samuel. The time spent sassing Seale and the rest of the cast is also a plus for her.
Performances of MACBETH are Fridays and Saturdays, October 14th through 29th at 7:30 PM; Sundays, October 16th & 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.
