Earth has gone to the dogs, literally. After "the incident," humans have gone underground and into space, leaving dogs to run the planet. But the Space Pirates have decided that they need to pave over Earth to put up a parking lot for their new nightclub on the moon. The Puppies have to join forces with their archenemies the Ninja Kittens and, along with the assistance of the Great Oracle, must seek the power of the greatest weapon they've never heard of. Epic adventures and battles ensue, and along the way, we learn a deep, dark secret...or three. Will the Puppies turn tail and run? Will the Ninja Kittens — ooh, string. Can the Earth be saved from certain construction? Will it all end in discord or harmony?
The Space Pirate Puppy Musical! is written and directed by Heather Bagnall and Luke Tudball with original music by award-winning composer and lyricist Steve Schalchlin.

While many children's theater troupes tell stories to kids, The Story Pirates believe that every kid has a story to tell. Made up of professional actors, improv comedians, and teaching artists, this troupe uses stories written by elementary school students as source material for over-the-top, sidesplitting musical plays. With songs, props, music videos, and puppets, the Story Pirates bring to life onstage what children have put down on paper (and computer).
At a typical show, there is no typical. Topics range from kung fu ninja babies fighting crime to the eternal love between the devil and a guy she meets at Starbucks. It's a world where cats can fly and Tickle Monsters have been known to take over the world. If the show sells out, the audience is treated to ice cream and cookies at the end!
