“March comes in like a lion, and out like a lamb.” The weather may leave you scratching your head, but the entertainment being offered by Arts of the Pamlico remains steadfastly entertaining, as well as diverse.

AOP continues offering great entertainment during the final week of February. On Thursday, the Beaufort County Traditional Music Association welcomes “Stray Local”, an exciting young group from Wilmington that plays a wide variety of folk and roots music in their own energetic style. The concert begins at 7 p.m. and is being offered for free. Saturday, AOP will show the Disney animated classic “Beauty and the Beast” at 1 p.m. All the princes and princesses across the land are invited to a tea party prior to the movie at noon. Tickets for this wonderful event are only $5.

Looking to the first full week of March, AOP welcomes “Dueling Pianos” back on March 8. They pair with the Washington-Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce to bring this high-energy, fantastic show to stage. Limited tickets are still available, $20 cash and $22 through Paypal or with a credit card. Then March 10 will be a busy day at the beautiful, historic Turnage Theatre. Art Market starts the day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., then the Washington Daily News’ Downeast Regional Spelling Bee will be held at 1 p.m, followed by the BCTMA’s Youth Talent Show. All events on Saturday are free to attend.
