Hickory – Something Rotten, the new musical now on stage at the Hickory Community Theatre, opened its run with packed houses and enthusiastic audiences.

Martha C. of Hickory said, “We laughed all the way through the show.”

Tiffany C. declared, “The show and the cast are extraordinarily good.”

Michael N. offered similar praise, saying “The energy of this cast—from the opening number to the final curtain—is electric, and the choreography is phenomenal.”

 Something Rotten is a hilarious musical comedy extravaganza that tells the story of a pair of 16th-century playwrights who set out to create the world’s very first musical.

Performances of Something Rotten are Fridays and Saturdays, September 3, 4, 10 & 11 at 7:30 pm; Sunday, September 5 at 2:30 pm; and Thursday, September 9 at 7:30 pm.

Tickets for all performances are $16 for adults and $10 for youth. For tickets visit hickorytheatre.org or call the box office at 828-328-2283.

Due to the rising number of cases of Covid-19 in Catawba County, and in accordance with the latest guidance from the CDC, the Hickory Community strongly recommends that patrons wear a mask or other face covering while inside the building.
