The Story Pirates, an acclaimed nationally touring company that turns kids’ wildly creative stories into musical sketch comedy, just released their first-ever album of songs: Nothing Is Impossible. With a zany array of topics, from office penguins to fashionable unicorns, soaring as high as the shiny stars and a carrot on Saturn, this is an album of 12 songs that spring from the unbound imaginations of children. The digital-only album, featuring original songs that originally aired on the Story Pirates Podcast, is performed by a cast of dozens of actors and musicians.

The Story Pirates aren’t your typical swashbuckling sailors. They don’t steal gold, pillage villages, or claim land; they’re searching for a different kind of treasure: kid’s wildest, most imaginative stories. Stories by children from Baltimore and beyond will be brought to life and staged by the Story Pirates’ professional improvisational and comedic actors – replete with music, costumes and sets. Story Pirates first received national attention in 2008 when comedian Jon Stewart called the ensemble “crazy entertaining” on CNN. Since that time, they’ve been described as a “mix between School House rock and Monty Python,” and the New York Times called the group “theatrical treasure.” They’re celebrating the release of their new album “Nothing Is Impossible,” with songs that originally aired on The Story Pirates Podcast.
