Ocracoke Island might be isolated, laid-back, relaxed, and a bit quirky, but it is no cultural backwater. Ocracoke has a vibrant music and art scene...and a long history of theater and musicals. Just two years ago our high school, under the direction of Charles Temple, produced "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
This year Charles has put together a cast of outstanding local actors to bring us another Shakespeare production, "Macbeth."
As in the past, the play will be performed "en plein air," this time at the newly renovated Berkley Manor near the Ocracoke Preservation Museum. Opening night is Wednesday, May 16. Other performances will be on the 17th, 18th and 20th. All shows begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for children, and can be purchased in advance at the school office or at the door.
