We have to give a big high five to the folks at the Theater of Dare. Ever since they moved into their new digs in Kitty Hawk, they have been producing some great shows and doing it on a very regular basis.
They’re really stepping their game up now, though.
Coming up this week and running Thursday through Sunday a reading of the classic movie A Christmas Story will be performed. This particular performance will be at the Dare Arts building in Manteo, not their Kitty Hawk location.
But it will also be the second production they are staging this month, which is a first for them.
What this will be is a reading, not a full on theatrical play. According to their notes on the what will be presented, “The staged reading is presented in a series of vignettes, with narration provided by the adult Ralphie Parker reminiscing on one particular Christmas when he was nine years old…”
The two big question, of course, are, “Will Ralphie get his a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle with a compass (BB gun) and will he shoot his eye out?”
The movie is a classic for a good reason, combining at once wonderful memories of childhood but never condescending to the feelings of the childre.
The Theater of Dare just finished up a run of George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s The Man Who Came to Dinner. A classic madcap comedy from the 1930s, the play has stood the test of time remarkably well.
Next up, Exit, Pursued by a Bear, a dark comedy of Southern revenge. The play runs the last two weekends of January.
There is always something happening on the Outer Banks, from the arts to theater and so much more. Stop by for a visit and be sure to stay in a Brindley Beach Vacations home.
