This reproducible mini-musical introduces an ornery, yet sweet Captain and a reliable First Mate who transform landlubber students into pirates. Through story and song, the shipmates dress in pirate costume, raise the Jolly Roger flag, spy with telescopes, find buried treasure, and show “thar” pride in a raucous pirate party.

Your presentation is sure to be a swashbucklin’ showstopper! This original mini-musical is fast-paced, funny, and perfect for any size group, whether presented as a full stage production or with a smaller ensemble on risers. There’s even a song to pull a “special” buccaneer from the audience to join in the fun! Performance time is approximately 20 minutes.
Your lads and lasses will avoid walkin’ the plank as they have fun learning about the pirate life in How to Be a Pirate (in Seven Easy Songs) — A mini-musical for the pirate in us all! Shawnee Press
