Bright Star Touring Theater teaches locals about N.C. history

Bright Star Touring Theater enlightened and entertained local students and community members on Friday, May 6 at Rogers Park with their production of “Jack’s Adventure in North Carolina History.” More than 400 years of North Carolina’s history was recreated before the audience’s eyes. From Sir Walter Raleigh to Zebulon Vance to Wilbur and Orville Wright, some of the most influential, exciting and colorful figures in North Carolina’s past emerged. This production was made possible by a Kirby Rogers Park grant of the Polk County Community Foundation. (photos submitted by Alison Hamrick)
