Hickory – This weekend is the opening of CADILLAC CREW, the second play in the Hickory Community Theatre’s Firemen’s Kitchen Series. Performances are Friday and Saturday, Feb 17 and 18, at 7:30pm and Sunday, Feb 19 at 2:30pm.

CADILLAC CREW is centered around four female activists working in a Virginia civil rights office. On the day that Rosa Parks is supposed to speak, they wonder if the equality of humankind includes women. Through engaging storytelling with unexpected moments of comedy and passionate performances, Cadillac Crew shines a spotlight on powerful woman leaders; particularly African American women who have been forgotten through history.

Performances of CADILLAC CREW are February 17 through March 4 in the Firemen’s Kitchen. Tickets for all performances are $16 for adults and $10 for youth and students. For tickets visit hickorytheatre.org or call the box office at 828-328-2283.

The HCT’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. CADILLAC CREW is being produced by The Corning Incorporated Foundation.
