Last night between 8 pm and 10 pm six participants in one of Donald Davis' annual storytelling workshops entertained a room full of people at Deepwater Theater on School Road. Stories (fanciful, heartwarming, and humorous) about boats, pickpockets, small town fire departments, and life passages kept the audience enthralled.
The storytelling workshop ended yesterday (and there is only one more this summer, the week after next) but there are plenty of other opportunities to enjoy music and storytelling on Ocracoke. Look for local talent at the Jolly Roger (Martin Garrish & Friends perform on Thursdays and Saturdays), the Pelican Restaurant, Mango Loco Restaurant, Howard's Pub, Deepwater Theater (Molasses Creek on Thursdays, the Opry on Wednesdays, Rumgagger Pirate Stories on Tuesdays & Fridays), and even at the Preservation Society Museum (check local bulletin boards for their schedule of porch talks).
