At last week's premier performance the cast of 22 played to a full house at the Ocracoke School Gymnasium with music, songs, and portrayals of piratical activity, love, romance, and lighthearted fun. Swashbuckling pirates, village girls, star-struck lovers, and, of course, the arch-villain Blackbeard kept the audience thoroughly entertained.
