The Story Pirates take on Manhattan on Nov. 3 and 10 at the Arthur Seelen Theater at the Drama Book Shop.
The Story Pirates believe that every kid has a story to tell. Made up of professional actors, improv comedians, and teaching artists, this troupe uses stories written by elementary school students as source material for over-the-top, sidesplitting musical plays. With songs, props, music videos, and puppets, the Story Pirates bring to life onstage what children have put down on paper (and computer).
Topics range from kung fu ninja babies fighting crime to the eternal love between the devil and a guy she meets at Starbucks. It’s a world where cats can fly and Tickle Monsters have been known to take over the world. If the show sells out, the audience is treated to ice cream and cookies at the end!
The Story Pirates, Nov. 3 and 10, noon to 1 pm. Tickets are $35. Suitable for kids of all ages.
