Ahoy mateys! Do I have a fun family event to share with you! And it is going to be yo ho ho and a bottle of FUN! Sorry, got a little carried away with Googling “pirate sayings” while inspired by this post…
Story Pirates is a national arts and literacy organization that engages students in under-resourced public schools by showing them that their ideas, words and stories are important. Originally founded in New York in 2003, Story Pirates believes that every child has a story to tell.
This Saturday, December 17th, 2011 Montage Laguna Beach is thrilled to offer a special performance of The Geffen Playhouse Story Pirates open to guests of Montage Laguna as well as local OC families. This fun-filled comedy musical showcases creative writing by students from across the country, performed by the best professional comedians and improvisers in the Los Angeles area.
A mix of sketches and songs adapted from stories written by elementary students, Story Pirates will delight and surprise with puppets, costumes and antics, all the while motivating children to be creative.
Story topics run the gamut, from kung fu ninja babies fighting crime, to hot dog superheroes and space bats. The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart calls the show “crazy entertaining.” Click here to watch him talking about Story Pirates with Larry King.
Show is complimentary; parking will be validated and charged a reduced rate of $8/car.
They hope to see ya thar!
