Blackbeard: An (Historical/Hysterical) Account

Ocracoke Alive’s Deepwater Theater and Music Hall is the island headquarters for Ocracoke Alive, as well as the home venue for summertime shows for Ocracoke's internationally renowned folk band, Molasses Creek (Thursdays), the Ocrafolk Opry (Wednesdays), and Blackbeard: An (Historical/Hysterical) Account (Mondays).

If you'd like to experience a uniquely Outer Banks thing to do June through September, be in these audiences! Detailed schedules and information about other special events are posted online, at the entrance to the theater and around the village. Show times vary between 7:30 and 8:00 PM, so check the online schedule for details. Ticket prices are around $15 for adults and $5-7 for children, and a weekly pass is available. Credit cards are accepted. Advance reservations recommended through the website or by calling 252-921-0260.

New this year is "Blackbeard, an Historical/Hysterical Account." The performance is filled with facts about Blackbeard and his demise at Ocracoke in 1718, and at the same time thoroughly entertaining fun for the entire family.
