Hickory – Join us in celebrating theatrical creativity for the Third Annual Hickory Playground on Saturday, July 28, from 7-10pm. Eight original plays written by local playwrights and performed by regional actors – their lines memorized, costumes made, blocking rehearsed, all in 48 hours.

Proceeds from the event will go to the arts departments of public schools in Catawba County, North Carolina. In the past two years, we have been able to give away $13,000… with your help, we can double that amount this year. And remember, purchasing Early Access Admission tickets (only $12!) allows you to reserve a seat in an optimal viewing area, and guarantees you 50% off all merchandise at the event. Join us!

Tickets are available at www.evenbrite.com. Drendel Auditorium is on the SALT block at 243 Third Avenue NE, Hickory, 28601.
