Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if You've got kids who've always dreamed of being pirates. Or if you've ever dreamed of being a pirate. Escapism at its finest.

Don't see it if You want deep, serious theatre. This is a super fun kids' show with a talented cast, and it is well worth seeing, even without kids in tow.

Theatre is Easy
August 23rd, 2016

"The ensemble is engaged, lively, and manages to find moments of real truth in the fantastic world. They avoid the over-energized falseness that can so often sink the ship of theatre for young audiences. The show is also enhanced significantly by some beautiful and delicate shadow puppets by Melissa Cherno; particularly nice is a boat with lifted sails that appears early in Sam’s fantasy."

Nitelife Exchange
August 26th, 2016

"An energetic play, although more work on some costumes and other visual elements would have brought more color and excitement...The writing of Leonora Bernstein’s piece is easygoing fare with some comedy. There are some lively instances of pirate talk and a parrot gets some good lines, too…A little more swashbuckling would be good, but this is fine if fairly mild fare. Some of the seven cast members could use more adrenaline and a pacing pick-me-up."
