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).
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).
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'd like to see several short little sketches written by young children, several of whom were in the audience. Great fun!
Don't see it if You are only into big giant touristy musicals.
