|Jimmy Creech, 1974|
"Popular preacher Jimmy Creech of Ocracoke Island, leader of the creative arts program for the Ocracoke United Methodist Church, is excited about two coming attractions. First, Ira David Wood, executive director of Stage '75 drama production group of Raleigh, will be a guest artist. 'A truly professional artist in dramatics, having starred several years in 'The Lost colony' as Old Tom and Sir Walter Raleigh, David brings to us an acting talent rich in perception and vitality,' Jimmy said. Attraction number two is well-known pottery craftswoman, Alice Proctor."
Ocracoke's tradition of theater, crafts, and music continues. Be sure to seek out shows and performances whenever you are on the island.
