Hickory – The Kitchen Witches, a new comedy at the Hickory Community Theatre is proving very popular with local audiences. Opening weekend performances were sold out and the upcoming second weekend has only 57 seats still available.

“It’s a bittersweet thing to be having to turn people away so early,” said John Rambo, Managing Director. “We’re doing our best to get word out about the remaining performances though. I always tell folks it’s never too early to get tickets but it can be too late if you wait.”

This delectable comedy is about two rival cooking show hosts who are pulled together onto the same show. One woman stole the other’s husband so the sparks and insults fly with hilarious results.

Upcoming performances of The Kitchen Witches are Thursdays at 7:30pm (Feb 15 & 22), Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm (Feb 16, 17, 23 & 24) and Sundays at 2:30pm (Feb 18 & 25.)

All seats are $16, seniors and students are $14. Tickets are now on sale online at hickorytheatre.org or through the Theatre box office, in person or by phone at 828-328-2283. Box office hours are 12-5 Wednesday through Saturday.
