North Carolina Marionette TheatreVisit Website
The North Carolina Marionette Theatre’s mission is to build an appreciation for puppetry as a visual and performing art through marionette performances by sharing North Carolina’s rich culture with visitors and residents through historical stories, legends and folk tales. This year our tale is "Tom Benn and Blackbeard the Pirate". The tale of Tom Benn who is tricked onto Blackbeard's ship, becomes the cabin boy and finds out that being a pirate isn't quite what he expected. When Blackbeard plans to rob his family’s farm, Tom does some quick thinking to protect his father and mother and brother Amos. You won’t want to miss this! Afterward each performance we offer a scarf marionette workshop where you can make your own marionette and learn to manipulate it with the puppeteers from the show. Maybe you could create your very own show! Ages are 3-12 year olds. Although teenagers think this is pretty cool too! NCMT is a 501c3 non profit theater. Join the Adventure!
