How I Became a Pirate

“A charming romp that never flags in its silliness for youngsters and sly asides for grown-ups”

— Oklahoma University News

When young Jeremy Jacobs and his exceptional digging skills are recruited by Captain Braid Beard for treasure burying purposes, Jeremy thinks the pirate life is for him. That is, until he realizes that the simple things in life, like a kiss and a warm tucking in at night, are those that are most important. This new musical is based on How I Became a Pirate, the best-selling children’s book by Melinda Long.

A JT Premiere. Recommended for ALL ages!
