WINTON TRIANGLE STAGE PRODUCTION
Held in February, 2009, The Winton Triangle stage production was our first major effort to present the Triangle’s history to the public at large. The Gallery Theater was almost full each of the two nights. Grandparents brought their children and grandchildren! People came from as far away as Atlanta and New York.
Students from Hertford County High, members of the Meherrin Indian Tribe, and the choirs of Pleasant Plains Baptist and New Bethany Missionary Baptist Churches were among the cast of 38 who took their well-deserved bows from an enthusiastic audience who heard and saw the telling of the 400+-year-old history of the Winton Triangle.
The multimedia production, directed by Ralph Hewitt, written and narrated by Marvin Tupper Jones, was promoted in the local newspapers and radios, by email, mail and phone calls. All three board members of the Chowan Discovery were part of the cast. The Chowan Discovery would like to thank all who came, participated and support our first big public effort!
The success of the stage production led to other opportunities for the Chowan Discovery Group,
