Something wickedly entertaining is coming to Hickory Community Theatre, as William Shakespeare's iconic tragedy MACBETH plays on stage October 21st through 29th.
Making a noble return to HCT as Scottish lord and "ever-gentle cousin" Ross is the man-of-many-voices: Will Vogler.
Hailing from Mount Airy—hometown of Grammy-winning country artist Donna Fargo—Vogler currently resides in Lenoir. When not maintaining greens as a landscaper, Vogler can be found mastering his skills as a character voice artist.
Vogler has been a familiar fixture at Hickory Community Theatre in recent years, through such roles as Brendan in THE WEIR, Ernie Mac in PUFFS, and a tour-de-force performance as Sam in FULLY COMMITTED. Vogler is excited to be making his first foray into the world of Shakespearean theatre, and counts himself fortunate to be joined on stage by brother Dylon Vogler. As with his experience to date at HCT, Vogler says "It feels like home."
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.
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.
