“Tom Dooley: A Wilkes County Legend” Outdoor Drama



  • Bleu Moon Productions


  • 1534 S. Recreation Road
    Wilkesboro NC 28697


Performed at the Fort Hamby Amphitheater, the drama brings to life the romance, jealousy, and mystery surrounding the murder of Laura Foster. In this visually stunning portrayal, audience members are treated to the sights and sounds of frontier NC, from the cannon blast of the Civil War to the fanciful tune of a “mollasy boilin' ” dance. Sit in on the trial of Tom Dooley and watch as the community gathers to witness his hanging. Written by NC native Karen Reynolds, the show begs the question, “Who really killed Laura Foster that fateful morning?”

Admission: $15 Adult Ticket $12 Student/Senior Group rates are available upon request
