Hickory – The rescheduled opening night for BUGSY MALONE is this Friday, December 10, at 7:30 pm. Visit hickorytheatre.org/box-office for tickets or call 828-328-2283.

Set in New York City, this musical comedy is a gangster movie spoof with an all-youth cast. The film is based loosely on events in New York and Chicago during the Prohibition era, specifically the exploits of real-life gangsters such as Al Capone and Bugs Moran. Unlike real-life events, this gang war is fought with silly string and cream pies.

Performances of BUGSY MALONE will be held on Fridays and Saturdays, December 10-18 at 7:30 pm; Sunday, December 12 at 2:30 pm and Thursday, December 15 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $16 for adults and $10 for youth & students.

Tickets are available online at hickorytheatre.org, or by phone at 828-328-2283. Weekday box office hours are 12-5, Wednesday through Friday, or one half-hour [BD1]  before any performance.

Due to the continued rate of Covid-19 cases in Catawba County, and in accordance with the latest guidance from the CDC, the Hickory Community strongly recommends that patrons wear a mask or other face covering while inside the building.

The Hickory Community’s 73rd season is sponsored by Paramount Automotive and Sunbelt Xpress. BUGSY MALONE is produced by Alex Lee, Inc. HCT is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
