Parkway Playhouse Family: “The Hughes”

“The Hughes Sisters” — it already has a ring to it, doesn’t it?  Despite their youth, being a part of A Christmas Carol will be Isabelle and Olivia’s 5th (yes, FIFTH!) Parkway Playhouse performance together.


What do you like about being in a play with your sister?

OLIVIA:  If it’s a cast where you don’t know anyone, at least I have someone to sit with instead of coming in and sitting by yourself.  But I’ve never been in a play without her.

What do you like about A Christmas Carol?

ISABELLE:  I like that there are new people and people I already know from Mulan Jr.  I also love singing all the Christmas songs.

Parkway Playhouse, located in the Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to get away, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we reimagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that last far beyond the curtain call. This blog is will feature stories, helpful information, insight and features about the performances.
