A musical sketch comedy show that is based entirely on stories written by kids, featuring brand new sketches every single week. More…
From mischievous dogs who peer pressure their owners, to triumphant rock operas about the time it rained at a Mets game, every story performed is written by an elementary schooler, and adapted by world-class comedians and improvisers. Each Flagship show features a combination of Story Pirates' greatest hits (written by kids from around the country), new stories (written by kids in the crowd), and a brand new improvised sketch (based on suggestions on-the-spot from kids in the audience).
for a previous production "About ten minutes in to the 'Story Pirates' hour-long show, I felt a wave of pure silliness wash over me. This troop of professional actors and educators who create original musicals based on real stories written by kids are so funny, I would challenge anyone not to leave the theater feeling happy...My only regret is that I didn't bring my three year old son. I think he would have loved it." Full Review
for a previous production "'Story Pirates' featured a group of musical sketch comedy artists who brought a story to life based on the words and ideas provided by kids in the audience. It was creative, clever and really funny...When the show was over, the cast gathered in the lobby to meet with kids, which was fantastic, which was a nice opportunity for the kids to continue to express their thoughts on the story."

See it if You like comedy! You support the writing of kids! You want to laugh your head off and celebrate literacy at the same time.
Don't see it if ... You are intent on keeping your heart cold.
See it if you have kids into theater and/or writing. Interesting & inspiring for them to experience a show written by other kids whom they might meet!
Don't see it if you ain't got no kids. This is a family day @ the theater. Afterwards, it was amazing to watch the interaction between the kids & writer(s).
