Hamlet At HCT, Feb. 3-19, Has Married Couple In Major Roles
Hickory - At the crux of the conflict in Hamlet sit the characters of Queen Gertrude and King Claudius. Their marriage followed very quickly after the death of Gertrude’s first husband, King Hamlet, who was Claudius’ brother. When Prince Hamlet returns home to find his father dead and his mother remarried to his uncle, this sets off the seeming madness that consumes him. In the upcoming Hickory production, these central characters are played by a real-life husband and wife, Beth and Mark Woodard. This is their second outing in Hamlet, the first was in 2002 at Lenoir-Rhyne where Beth played Gertrude and Mark was Laertes.
When asked how many times they have played married couples on stage Mark replied, “Hamlet continues a proud tradition of us playing extremely messed up couples. The only time Beth and I played a happily married couple was about twelve years ago when we were both doing Horn in the West, the outdoor drama in Boone. We played the leads, Doctor and Mrs. Stuart together there for three seasons.”
Beth is the Theatre Arts teacher at South Caldwell High School, where she has been sharing her passion for theatre for 22 years. Hamlet marks her sixth appearance on the Hickory stage, where she has played Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing, multiple roles in the ensemble of Les Miserablés, Regan in King Lear and Lady Macbeth in Macbeth. The latter role earned her the Outstanding Actress Kay Award and a Best Regional Actress nomination from the Metrolina Theatre Association. Her professional career includes seven seasons with Horn in the West in Boone. She holds a BA in both English and Theatre Education from Lenior-Rhyne University and a Masters in Theatre Education from UNC Greensboro.
Mark is also an accomplished theatre artist, with a BA in Theatre Arts from Catawba College and 25 years of credits in community and professional theatre. His professional credits include several seasons with Horn in the West, five seasons with the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival and eleven productions at Ensemble Stage in Blowing Rock. As a community theatre actor he has won multiple Willy Awards with Foothills Performing Arts in Hudson and starred in several productions at Hickory Community Theatre, the last time as Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2008. Since then, his work at HCT has been as a director, staging such productions as Trying, Watson Intelligence, Superior Donuts and, most recently The Flick. In addition to playing Claudius in Hamlet, he is also the fight choreographer.
Hamlet is on stage in the Jeffers Theatre from February 3-19, 2017. Performances are 8:00 pm Fridays & Saturdays (Feb 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 & 18,) 7:30 pm Thursdays (Feb 9 & 16,) and 2:30 on Sundays (Feb 12 & 19.) Tickets are $18. There is a senior discount of $2 and tickets for students and youth 18 and under are just $10. Tickets for Thursday performances are $14 for adults and $10 for students and youth.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.hickorytheatre.showare.com or at the theatre box office. The box office is open 12-5 Wednesday through Friday in person or by calling 828-328-2283.
