Hickory – Guest Director Murray Phillips has just announced the cast of the next RugBug Theatre play, Cookies Don’t Have Legs!, which opens Thursday, August 9 at 2:30pm in the Council Chambers at the Hickory Community Theatre.

In this fun play Mom gives her kids a bag of freshly made cookies and they decide to play a game. When they take a break the cookies have disappeared. What follows is a detective adventure to find out how cookies could just walk away.
