A Memorable Musical Week

Recent island buzz has centered around Julia Howard's musical, A Tale of Blackbeard. Revived after a two-decades-long hiatus, the play, with a new cast under the direction of Charles Temple and Desiree Ricker, delighted audiences with four outstanding performances last week, redefining community theater for islanders and visitors alike.

The musical will continue with Monday night shows from June 9 - August 11. More information is available here: http://www.ocrafolkfestival.org/blackbeard. To read Susan Dodd's review please click here: http://www.ocracokecurrent.com/87933.
