DALLAS CHILDREN’S THEATER TO PRESENT HOW I BECAME A PIRATE AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY MARCH 25
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Audience members of all ages will enjoy the Dallas Children’s Theater’s production of How I Became a Pirate at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 25 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
Sail off on a swashbuckling musical excursion as young Jeremy Jacobs joins Captain Braid Beard’s band of comical pirates and searches for the perfect spot to bury their treasure. Jeremy finds fun and adventure on the high seas, but he soon learns that home and family are treasures you can’t find on any map. Based on the popular book by Melinda Long, with illustrations by David Shannon, How I Became a Pirate is a joyful family musical that is sure to leave everyone singing and dancing in the aisles.
Recognized by Time magazine as one of the top five children’s theater companies in the U.S., and the only one of that group to tour nationally, Dallas Children’s Theater “travels coast to coast with professional, large-scale productions designed to stir the heart, stretch the mind, and promote education,” according to the company’s website.
Book, music, and lyrics for How I Became a Pirate are by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman.
