Pirate Audition -- Men Only! 

3/11/20 @ 6:30pm

Pirates & Petticoats

by: Pat Cook

Fans of big-screen pirate movies will applaud this action-packed pirate play.  Ruthless Cap’n Ball, the meanest pirate in the Caribbean, is bested by an adventure-seeking male librarian and a crew of lady pirates.  A the "Din ’O Thieves Inn," Squire Juan schemes to shanghai hapless librarian Fisher Cutbait for Cap’n Ball, but things go awry.  Reading his swordplay instruction manual as he duels, Cutbait defeats Cap’n Ball.  Furious for revenge, Cap’n Ball returns to the inn with his crew of cutthroats, but he’s met there by a British officer with a warrant for his arrest.  Just like in the movies, swords clash and rogues and good guys appear from nowhere.  One surprise twist follows another!  It appears that no one can win the battle until lady pirate Cap’n Gown arrives to beat them all.  The dialog is authentic pirate lingo to fit the hilarious 17th-century characters.  The unrelenting stage action and unpredictable ending make this pirate play a fun show for "lads" and "lassies" alike.

Basic audition rules apply. 16 and over ONLY.
