How I Became A Pirate

Closed March 2, 2013

A story of adventure and finding your own heart - a path that can't be found on any treasure map!

Why See How I Became A Pirate?

Young Jeremy Jacob is digging in the sand at North Beach when he is enthusiastically greeted by Captain Braid Beard and his gang, and is recruited to help find the perfect digging spot for their treasure.

This sea-faring musical features songs like "A Good One To Boot," "Green Teeth," "I'm Really Just a Sensitive Guy," "You've Got to Talk Like a Pirate," and "Pirates Dot Aaargh!". It will have your kids rolling in the aisles and leaving the theater secretly hoping that Braid Beard and the gang whisks them off to sea!
