Back in 2018 for the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard's demise right off of Ocracoke! This popular island musical was written in 1973 by Julia Howard. Directed by Karen Gulotta, this tale is loosely based on Blackbeard's 1718 battle with Lt. Robert Maynard, and on a real-life Ocracoke boardinghouse, run by islander Euphemia Curtis in the mid-1800s. All else must be attributed to artistic license. Don't miss this event . . .get your tickets in advance!
