Ties That Bind: Shawna Wilson plays Marie in BARBECUE

Two antagonistic families battling the forces of addiction converge in Robert O'Hara's acerbic social satire BARBECUE, which finishes its run this weekend in the Firemen's Kitchen at HCT, March 7th-9th.

Appearing as Marie in this production is Shawna Wilson.

Born and raised in Florida, Wilson has been living in the Hickory area for the past three years. She holds a degree in Theatre Performance from the University of Southern Florida and currently works as a Software Analyst for Texas Instruments.

Area audiences know Wilson for both her acting and directing talents. Among those directing credits are EXIT PURSUED BY A BEAR, RIPCORD and END DAYS, all at Hickory Community Theatre. Acting roles of note include Mrs. Lovett in SWEENEY TODD, Angelica in THE ROVER, Mrs. Dilber in A CHRISTMAS CAROL, and Gertrude in THE SEAHORSE.

Says Wilson of her character: "Who doesn't love a funny drunk?" Wilson is grateful for the variety of shows produced by Hickory Community Theatre, including once as "funny and thought-provoking" as BARBECUE.

All remaining performances of BARBECUE are currently SOLD OUT. If you would like to be placed on a wait list in the rare event that tickets become available, please contact the Hickory Community Theatre by phone at 828-328-2283. Please be aware that you may be notified at the last minute. The theatre box office is open from 12-5 PM Wednesday through Friday, or one half-hour before a performance.

BARBECUE is rated R for adult language and mature subject matter.

The Hickory Community Theatre’s 75th season is sponsored by Paramount Automotive, SunBelt Xpress and Green Park Dentistry. HCT is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
