Corinna Wicker, who served as box office manager for Sanford, NC's Temple Theatre for 16 years, died on April 5 at 1:05 AM, according to executive director Tim Morrissey. Ms. Wicker, in her 80s, died of cancer. "She came out of retirement to work at Temple in 1984," Morrissey told Playbill On-Line. "The cancer became apparent last April-May, and she worked all the way up until June." A box office manager is responsible for all the reservations and ticket sales at a theatre.
A plaque in Ms. Wicker's honor will be put up outside the box office window, Morrissey told PBOL. Bonnie Sexton is the current box office manager for the theatre, which will next be offering Camping with Henry and Tom (April 20-May 6).
