The Hardeman County Arts Council (HCAC) will run the Curse of the Cobra’s Kiss Mystery Dinner Theatre Thursday through Saturday, February 11-13, 2021. Assembled at Professor Tommy Towers’ estate are his wife, his jealous secretary, a n’er-do-well nephew with feuding girlfriends, a ruthless Hollywood director, two vengeful movie starlets, a mysterious fortune teller, a secretive graduate assistant and rival reporters. Is it any wonder that the wealthy professor quickly meets his end when a cobra injects him with poison?
The Hardeman County Arts Council (HCAC) provides artistic forums in a wide range of venues to educate, entertain, and enrich the community. In so doing, amateur artists will be facilitated to develop their artistic talents to levels that satisfy their own artistic objectives and goals, as well as benefiting the public. The HCAC seeks to provide the best in artistry, entertainment, and culture. We hope to inform, enchant, and inspire the community through the presentation of local groups, individual artists, and major art organizations, that will nurture and promote the arts.
