Why: Argh matey! It’s pirate’s life for me on the high seas! One day as Jeremy builds a sand castle on the beach, a pirate ship rows ashore in search of a place to bury the pirate’s treasure. Taken aboard as an honorary pirate, Jeremy learns the ropes of what it really means to be a swashbuckling (but smelly) pirate, and the pirates just might learn how to play soccer too.
Based on the favorite story, your kids will love seeing the real life Jeremy Jacob reenact their favorite scenes from the book and may even announce this is better than the bestseller in their room. The set includes an interactive pirate ship which is unbelievably realistic and inviting (like most playgrounds we see in DC nowadays)– we wanted to climb aboard the ship and pretend we were pirates too. Kids will laugh at the sound of hearing pirates talk about the poop deck and adults will find humor from the actor’s playful pirate banter and tunes. The performers have amazing voices and each own makes the play dynamic–Blimey! This is yet another can’t miss show put on by Adventure Theatre, one in which I have told everyone we know to “avast ye” (stop and check this out) before it’s too late.
