Williamston Theatre has two recorded offerings on its website. The Fire Tour is free, and narrates the stories behind local fires, intended to be listened to on a walk around Williamston. Harriet Oriona is a new script by Annie Martin - also designed to be listened to in Williamston locations - but both CAN be listened to anywhere. Harriet Oriona is a ticketed experience, you can choose $10, $20, or $30. You may choose to donate more to the theatre, in general, as it is going through some big renovations, removing the annoying support poles that have blocked some views of the stage.
