Clay Jenkinson is best known for his historically accurate portrayal of Thomas Jefferson, but his role as the third president of our nation is just one of many roles he brings to the stage.

This Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday the Bryan Cultural Series brings Mr. Jenkinson to the Outer Banks to perform three of his lesser known interpretations.

Clay Jenkinson in OBX Performance

Monday he will  will be at the Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk interpreting the words of Meriwether Lewis. Meriwether Lewis was the Lewis of the  Lewis and Clark expedition that explored the new boundaries of the Louisiana Purchase.

On Tuesday at the Soundstage at the Lost Colony in Manteo, he will have an OBX performance of Sir Walter Raleigh, a character he rarely presents. Jenkinson became interested in Raleigh in a previous visit to the Outer Banks and his research into the man’s history has helped him create a truly nuanced character.

Mr. Jenkinson will complete his Bryan Cultural performances with “Shakespeare, the Magic of Words” at First Flight High School in Kill Devil Hills on Friday.

He will be performing as Thomas Jefferson on Thursday evening at a sold at Coastal Provisions in Southern Shores. That OBX performance, though, is sold out.

This is a huge offseason week for activities on the Outer Banks. 

As the Clay Jenkinson performances wrap up, the Outer Banks Taste of the Beach will be starting. That is a great excuse to spend some extra time away from home.

The Outer Banks Taste of the Beach is one of the highlights of spring on the Outer Banks. The date has been moved back a bit from it’s tradition mid March schedule, and the weather right now is looking just about perfect.

Clay Jenkinson, the Outer Banks Taste of the Beach—both great reasons to spend extra time on the Outer Banks and enjoy this OBX performance. There is though, always a reason to visit. Make your reservations today with Brindley Beach Vacations a get ready to relax and enjoy life. Contact us today!
