About the Show
This riotous, interactive pirate escapade satisfies children’s universal curiosity for the briny buccaneers of yore, while promoting everyday polite behavior and social-courage.
Now in it’s 24th season, Pirate School! has delighted thousands of families with a mischievous blend of improvisational clown theater and it's signature brand of boisterous full-audience participation. Parents marvel as their kids become “good pirates,” swaggering out of the virtual theater transformed by this heartwarming family show.
During Pirate School! the bumbling pirate professor Billy Bones, played by David Engel, teaches youngsters 4 and up the finer points of light-hearted mischief. The audience partakes in riotous, joyful competitions that rattle the rafters and zany lessons on how to stand, talk, sing and laugh like jaunty Buccaneers
Featuring an original cartoon-like sound effect and musical score, eye-popping puppetry, eccentric props, adept magic, slapstick swordplay antics, a misbehaving cannon, a talking skull and the world’s only wearable pirate ship, Pirate School! is truly a treasure to discover!
