I've located another vintage Ocracoke video. I was chatting with Melissa Garrish Sharber at the post office a few days ago and she alerted me to a YouTube video of the 1990 July 4th entertainment at the Ocracoke Preservation Museum. The "sailors" from the local musical "A Tale of Blackbeard" were performing one of their favorite numbers, "Ocracoke Cutie."
Danny Garrish, Melissa's daddy, and one of the funniest and most delightful people I've ever known, has the lead (he played the ship's cook). My son Stefen played the lead romantic role and sings the duet with Danny.
Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_OJKwfUGK8.
If you remember "A Tale of Blackbeard," Danny, Stefen, or any of the other actors, leave a comment with your recollections. I hope you enjoy the video.
