Theater on Ocracoke

Shakespeare on Ocracoke ("A Midsummer Night's Dream") was such a success that Charles Temple's English class is preparing to produce three student-directed 1-act plays this fall. There has already been one audition (this past Tuesday), but I'm guessing that, even if all the parts have been assigned (and I'm also guessing that they may not have been), that volunteers to help with various aspects of the productions would be warmly welcomed.

For more information, contact Charles Temple at 921-0462.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter, Looking for the Wahabs of Ocracoke, was written by Dr. James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute. You can read the article here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news082110.htm.

    Ocracoke island has so much to offer one & all! The concept of students directing one-act plays is awesome. Some folks would think the students are limited to opportunities because the school is small, but I believe those fortunate students experience so much more! What a sense of "community"! What I would give to be a student (or teacher) @ the local Ocracoke school!

    Speaking of awesome, I just checked out the Ocracoke Airport web-cam and the waves are larger and more visible this a.m. when crashing on shore. Guess it's thanks to the strength of "Igor" out at sea.

    I never grow weary of viewing the incredible web-cams scattered all over Ocracoke! What a treat for us whose hearts are on the island, but whose bodies live on the mainland!

    Again, many thanks, Philip, for giving everyone this unique and wonderful Ocracoke blog!

    We really look forward t attending another play put on by Charles Temple, his students and others of Ocracoke. Vacationing in the spring we attended opening night of A Midsummer Night's Dream..LOVED IT!
    We also regret not moving to Ocracoke years back..the island is a beautiful place to raise children and don't for once think because Ocracoke School is small in student size that the children are below others from large vicinities..the people of Ocracoke are brighter than you think. Ocracoke is a state of mind..a quality place to live, far and few between these days.

    Also I would like to add, when visiting in the Spring I was strolling near the school. I noticed something that just made me smile..some students ride their bicycles to school, parked along the bigger bikes was a small bike with training wheels..training wheels people...no where have I seen such a ssafe area for children to live..where in the world do you know it safe enough for a little one, young enough to need training wheels on his/her bike to school, attend classes for the day and then head back home, lol. Only in OCINC. Paradise.
