Premiere of Bushwhackers

July 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Like history and music? You’ll like this one! And it’s a chance to see the first run of a brand-new musical! You’ll learn a little-known story of Keith and Malinda Blalock from Grandfather Mountain—the “Bonnie and Clyde of North Carolina.” He supported the Union cause, but the Confederate Army wanted him. So, he joined them. And so did she. He was initially unaware that she had disguised herself as a man to join him in his adventure. You’ll follow their exploits from the Battle of Kinston and back to the west where they join a band of Union-favoring Bushwhackers. Their story is told by Bill Hand with music by James Merritt, two of Eastern North Carolina’s finest!
Show dates are July 19, 20, 26 & 27 at 7pm and July 21 & 28 at 2pm at Craven Community College’s Orringer Auditorium.
Presented i partnership with Craven Community College.

olTickets will be available June 1 at www.NCHistoryTheater.org and at the Bank of the Arts at 317 Middle Street, New Bern.
