Hickory Community Theater




  • 30 3rd St NW



Over the past 63 years, Hickory Community Theatre has grown to be one of the premier community theatres in North Carolina.

The theatre primarily serves residents of Hickory and Catawba County, but audiences, performers and volunteers have come from more than 100 miles away.

The theatre offers varied programming aimed at diverse audiences. The Mainstage Series presents musicals, drama and family shows. The Fireman’s Kitchen, in the basement, offers contemporary and experimental work in an intimate setting. For young audiences and performers there is the RugBug Theatre, for seniors there is the Encore Players, and for minority audiences there is the Bridgeview Project.

In addition to its traditional role of bringing live theatre to the Catawba Valley, the Theatre serves as the classroom for Catawba Valley Community College stage craft classes and as a practical lab for students at Lenoir-Rhyne University and for UNC School of the Arts students studying design.
