Henderson Community Theatre is now on Facebook!
Henderson Community Theatre is the resident acting troupe of the Henderson Fine Arts Center. The HCT continues to involve HCC students and other members of the community in two productions each year.
Henderson Community Theatre performed A Tale of Two Cities at the Henderson Fine Arts Center on April 5 and 6.
This adaptation of Charles Dickens’ historical drama depicts the years leading up to the French Revolution when “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” The play moves between London and Paris, between the revolutionaries and the more well-to-do, between the court of law and the guillotine.
The production featured Paul Metzger as the cynical Sydney Carton, Megan Mortis as young Lucie Manette, Evonda Dickinson as bloodthirsty Therese Defarge, Alex Nantz as the idealistic Charles Darnay, Walt Dickinson as the tortured Dr. Alexandre Manette, Ryan Peters as the revolutionary Ernest Defarge, Frank Furbush as kind banker Jarvis Lorry, and Bonnie Bartley as loyal Miss Pross. Steve McCarty, Merrill Punke, Carly Conley, Mary Minnette, Cindy Evans, Shirley Bailey, Tom Mioduszewski, Megan Nantz, Amanda Nalley, and Lacey Felker appeared in multiple roles as nobles, lawyers, rebels, and other characters. Abbie Howard appeared as little Babette.
