WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
While many children's theater troupes tell stories to children, The Story Pirates believe that every child has a story to tell. This New York City arts education organization exists entirely because of kids. The group of professional actors, improv comedians and teaching artists uses stories written by elementary students as source material for outrageous, over-the-top, side-splitting musical plays. Adding songs, props, music videos and puppets, they bring to life on stage what children scribble down on paper.
At a typical Story Pirates show, story topics run the gamut, 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 sometimes fly and Tickle Monsters have been known to take over the world.
At the end of every sold out show, the entire audience is treated to free ice cream and cookies!
