Nazi Invasion Reenactment Rescheduled For Friday Evening


The reenactment of the infamous Nazi U-boat landing on the beach at Atlantic Avenue in Amagansett has been rescheduled and will take place on Friday at 6:30 p.m. The event was originally scheduled for Thursday night but was canceled because of heavy rain.

The Amagansett Life-Saving and Coast Guard Station Committee recommends that people bring blankets and beach chairs for the performance, which will start at 7 p.m.

This year, a script and props will be used to create a more dramatic and palpable performance, according to East Hampton Village Historian Hugh King. Mr. King wrote the script and is directing the performance, which is being hosted by the Amagansett Life-Saving and Coast Guard Station Committee

East Hampton attorney and town justice hopeful Carl Irace will play the role of saboteur George Dasch, Evan Thomas will be his comrade Ernest Burger and Town Councilman Dominick Stanzione will play Heinrich Heinck. Mr. King did not cast an actor to play the fourth saboteur, whose role, he said, was limited to tending their boat. Sonny Sireci will play John Cullen, the 21-year-old guardsman who discovered the Nazis on the foggy beach. Kent Miller will play the other guardsman at the Life-Saving Station, Carl Jenette.
