“This area has been so strong in the arts and that is one reason my whole family just loved it,” said Thomas from her home in Manteo this week.
Thomas, 83, will be in Elizabeth City today to speak to the Museum Guild about her days with the Albemarle Players and share photographic memories. Friend and fellow Albemarle Players member Nancy Ferebee says the many productions put on by the players were great fun and says Thomas was instrumental in making those plays exciting, quality entertainment for the area.
“One reason we moved to Elizabeth City from Burlington, N.C. was because it was so active in the arts and had a good school system and was close to the Outer Banks where we had a summer home,” said Thomas.
That was in 1958.
