Hickory – The Hickory Community Theatre’s production of the hit musical comedy, RIDE THE CYCLONE, returns for its third weekend of performances this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 2-4.

This popular musical is a funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived. It’s a wickedly funny mash up teen angst and disaster, with a surprisingly compassionate climax.

Performances of RIDE THE CYCLONE are Fridays and Saturdays, February 2 through February 10 at 7:30pm; Sunday, February 4 at 2:30pm; and Thursday, February 9 at 7:30pm.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $10 for students. Tickets may be purchased online at hickorytheatre.org or by phone at 828-328-2283.

RIDE THE CYCLONE is rated R for adult language, themes and situations.

The Hickory Community Theatre’s 75th anniversary season is sponsored by A Cleaner World, Green Park Dentistry, Paramount Automotive and Sunbelt Xpress. RIDE THE CYCLONE is produced by Sandra and George Clay, III. The Hickory Community Theatre is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
