Show at 6:00 PM
SPECIAL OPENING NIGHT PERFORMANCE & EVENT!! Join us for opening night on the Battleship with a reception that begins at 6 pm, the performance at 7 pm, and watch the July 4th fireworks at 9 pm. Thalian Association Community Theatre, the Friends of the Battleship North Carolina and the Battleship North Carolina proudly present Mr. Roberts--one of the most enduring plays from the World War II era. Mister Roberts shows, with a light touch, a side of war that is often forgotten—not the excitement or the heroism of battle, but the boredom of the men assigned to less glamorous work, where one's enemies are as often as not the officers who hold power over them, rather than the soldiers or sailors of the opposing forces.Don't miss this wonderful and one-of-a-kind performance of this amazing play, LIVE on the Battleship!
Attention! Seating capacity for the performances on the Fantail (outside
on the deck) is 350. However, we are pre-selling only 150 for each
performance because our inside rain location is the Wardroom, and it's
capacity is 150. We have currently sold 150 inside tickets for the July 4th
performance for Mr. Roberts. *However, due to unprecedented demand, we
have opened up ticket sales for July 4 to those who are hopeful, like we
are, that it will not rain*. BY PURCHASING THIS TICKET, YOU UNDERSTAND
THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND THIS EVENT IF IT WILL BE HELD INDOORS
DUE TO RAIN. You will be able to choose another date to enjoy the play,
and the difference between the July 4 ticket price and a regular ticket
price will be considered a donation to the Thalian Association and the
Friends of the Battleship. If this event is held indoors due to rain, you
will be contacted by phone and/or email to let you know before the
performance date. All tickets are non-refundable.
