Hailed as "crazy entertaining" by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, the Story Pirates will keep you doubled over laughing with their Greatest Hits Show, a hilarious sketch comedy musical.

 

Performed by professional actors and musicians, the show is based on stories written by elementary school students and on the spontaneous ideas of kids in the audience. Sketches run the gamut from kung fu ninja babies fighting crime, to cats flying, to tickle monsters who rule the world.

 

This forty-five-minute performance features a cast of six actors, a pianist, and colorful sets, costumes, and props for a hilarious theater experience that everyone will enjoy and no one will forget!

 

Story Pirates celebrate the words and ideas of young people. They believe that kids have the best ideas, so Story Pirates turn kids’ original stories into wild sketch comedy musicals featuring professional actors to show those kids just how amazing their ideas are. Story Pirates believe that desire drives learning, so they pair top-notch teaching artists with professional comedians to create writing curricula that make kids want to learn. They believe that there is a powerful link between literacy and confident self-expression, so Story Pirates haven’t stopped expanding since the day they started providing programming at a single Harlem elementary school in 2003.

 

Note: An ASL interpreter will be present at this performance.
