There’s a lot to love about the Crystal Coast, and no, it’s not just the beach or the water. There’s shopping and dining, tons of events and entertainment, rich history, and even our share of arts and culture. And there’s no better place to enjoy a refined evening at the theatre (while supporting local talent) than at Carteret Community Theatre in Downtown Morehead City.
Explore Carteret Community Theatre: The Venue
Since 1948, there has been an amateur theatre group in Carteret County, and in 1953, the group reorganized as the Carteret Community Theatre. Today, the Theatre is a 500-seat venue boasting some of the best acoustics around. All seating is general admission and there’s great visibility from anywhere in the house.
Discover the Talent
Throughout the years, Carteret Community Theatre has hosted acts from historical plays to comedies to tragedies. There have been musicals, one-acts, and even residencies with Missoula Children’s Theatre. The theatre also hosts kids’ summer camps and all-ages classes and learning programs.
