Hickory – Accomplished actor Joshua Propst makes his return to the Hickory stage as Sam in “The Flick,” a dramatic comedy centered around three “millennials” who work at a run-down movie theatre in Massachusetts.

Propst, who studied Theatre at Lenoir-Rhyne University, his last stage role in Hickory was Richard in “The Lion in Winter,” but he hasn’t been idle in the meantime. Just last month he played Lord Illingworth in Oscar Wilde’s “A Woman of No Importance” with Foothills Performing Arts. During the daylight hours he is the grocery manager at the Food Matters Market in Morganton.
