Something wickedly entertaining haunts the Hickory Community Theatre, as William Shakespeare's iconic tragedy MACBETH continues through October 29th.
Making a spellbinding return to the HCT stage is Taylor Edwards as First Witch.
A Hickory resident and Catawba College graduate, Edwards has been performing at Hickory Community Theatre since the 1990s. His most recent HCT acting credits include MEMPHIS, THE COLOR PURPLE, THE THANKSGIVING PLAY, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, HAIR and DREAMGIRLS.
Though he describes himself as a lover of musicals—and, indeed, does get in some (admittedly sinister) singing in this current role—Edwards appreciates the opportunity to flex his dramatic muscles in this iconic role. He also has a deep appreciation for the diverse shows and performers found on stage at Hickory Community Theatre.
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.
