Sleep in Safety: The Legend of Octavia Hatcher

The Appalachian Center for the Arts presents Sleep in Safety: The Legend of Octavia Hatcher, October 22 through 31, 2020, in downtown Pikeville, Kentucky.

Since the early part of the 20th century, Octavia Hatcher’s monument has watched over the city of Pikeville from the cemetary on the hill. Octavia’s brief marriage to prominent Pikeville businessman James Hatcher ended suddenly when she suffered an unknown illness that resulted in her being buried alive.

This original, tragic story of her life and death is a chilling account which may explain why many say her spirit walks the graveyard to this day.

AUDIENCE ADVISORY Rated PG

Tickets will be available at the Community Trust Bank Box Office at The Appalachian Wireless Arena or by calling 606-262-4004.

The Appalachian Center for the Arts will be showcasing The Marvelous Wonderettes, August 13-15 @ 7:30 and August 20-22 @ 7:30, 2020 in Downtown Pikeville, Kentucky.

Take a trip back to the 1958 Springfield High school prom where we meet the Marvelous Wonderettes, four girls with voices as big as their bouffants and personalities as kooky as their crinoline skirts!  From prom night to their ten year reunion, the girls perform such classic hits as…

It’s My Party * Mr. Sandman * Lollipop
Son of a Preacher Man * Leader of the Pack
Dream Lover * Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me
You Don’t Own Me * RESPECT * Rescue Me AND MORE!
