Hickory – The smash hit comedy, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, will begin its nine performance run this weekend, starting on March 17 at the Hickory Community Theatre. It’s a play about an inept British theatre company struggling to mount their largest production ever, The Murder at Haversham Manor. Their plans go awry however, as absolutely everything that could possibly go wrong does, with hilarious results.

Performances of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG are March 17 through April 1 in the Jeffers Theatre. 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. THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is being produced by CommScope and Green Park Dentistry.
