Since October of 1948 there has been an amateur theatre group here in Carteret County.

Our Story

Since October of 1948, there has been an amateur theatre group in Carteret County. That original group reorganized in November 1953 as the Carteret Community Theatre.

We’ve produced historical plays based on local figures such as the Confederate spy, Emeline Pigott; on Blackbeard, the pirate; and on Otway Burns, privateer. Early productions ranged from comedies to tragedies and from one-acts to musicals. In recent years, musicals and children’s shows have been high on our audiences’ popularity list. Altogether, in the past 68 years, we have mounted over 200 major productions.

Starting in 1994, we have co-sponsored residencies each year with the Missoula Children’s Theatre, giving local children unique theatrical opportunities. The establishment of the LeRae Kesel Fund enabled us to assist various programs to aid county children in theatre arts.

The success of our theatre over more than half a century can be attributed to dedication, determination, and talent. But those fine attributes might have been to no avail without the outstanding support of businesses and individuals who help financially; from school and college personnel who have cooperated in providing stage facilities for rehearsals and productions; from people who have built sets, made costumes, applied makeup and perhaps most importantly from our audiences who have helped to make it all worthwhile.

I have an awesome film recommendation for this performing arts community that I think you all would really enjoy! A few weeks ago I watched Ruby in Paradise, which is an empowering coming of age drama from 1993 that won the Grand Jury Prize for Drama at the Sundance Film Festival that same year, and was just rereleased on all VOD platforms. This film follows the courageous story of a young woman named Ruby, played by Ashley Judd in her breakout role, who is on a search for self discovery as she leaves her old life behind and starts fresh on the coast of Florida, in hopes of creating a better life for herself there. Judd does an amazing job of portraying a strong and authentic character who stays unapologetically true to herself, that many can relate to, and her performance throughout this film is a great example for young aspiring actors and actresses. I hope you all get a chance to check out this film! I streamed it on Amazon and you can also find the trailer on the Quiver Distribution Youtube channel.
Just wondering, as someone who liked to attend but has only been peripherally involved, can someone provide an update as to if/when productions will start again at the theatre on Arendell? Is the building being repaired? I've enjoyed several of these shows and miss them.
Raleighwood Theater is out of business. They have four large NC Iconic mosaic fabric panels. Each approx. 10 ft x14 ft. Biltmore House, Wright Memorial, Battleship NC and the Okrokoe Lighthouse. There is "NO CHARGE" for these panels. We are looking for a location/person that can use them and hopefully share with the public. If you know someone that can use even "ONE" please respond directly to co-owner Denise Keane, [email protected]
Are the summer camp productions for children still on for the summer 2020?
It was a Carteret Community Theatre reunion in Pinehurst, NC! Gay Willis sang, Wayne Osborne played drum set and Bill Colbert and Judy Osborne were in the audience.
WE are launching a community TV effort in Morehead City where we will help you create an hour program and share it with the world. Give us a like and tell your friends https://www.facebook.com/The-Charted-Life-After-Dark
Just saw this with my 3 year old granddaughter. Everyone was fabulous. The costumes, correograpy, sound, songs, actors all amazing. A memory I’ll always treasure.
Are you guys hosting Missoula Children's theatre this year? I know in the past West Carteret was used for this event?
Devra here: We are aware of damage to the theater. Not certain of extent yet, or repairs needed. Please keep yourself safe and all of our homes in your prayers.
