The Greatest Pirate Story (N)ever Told!
Saturday, March 28 at 2 pm

An Interactive and Improved Musical Direct from Off-Broadway
Tickets are $25 and $20. Recommended for ages 4 & up.

The Greatest Pirate Story (N)ever Told! is a madcap, musical adventure that revolves around Captain Henry Martin and his stalwart crew, who have been flung in to the future by a befuddled sea witch to perform the greatest pirate epic ever seen on stage. But with their script torn asunder, these pirates-turned-players are forced to improvise their show as it unfolds, based upon the audience's suggestions.

Full of swordplay and wordplay with a boatload of laughs for pirates age 4 to 104, this swashbuckling musical is never the same show twice!! Says The New York Times: “More laughs than there are bones in Davy Jones’s locker!” The show was nominated as “Best Family Show 2014” by the Off-Broadway Alliance Awards.
