La Mirada Theatre to Present STORY PIRATES - GREATEST HITS SHOW, 11/24
La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts presents the second show in its 2013-14 Programs for Young Audiences series, Story Pirates Greatest Hits Show. This 60-minute fast-paced, hilarious sketch comedy musical is recommended for audiences ages 4 and up. Performances are Sunday, November 24, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
The Story Pirates Greatest Hits Show celebrates creative writing by students from coast to coast in a hilarious sketch comedy musical performed by professional actors. A collection of the best stories and songs adapted from stories written by elementary school students, Story Pirates will delight and surprise with puppets, enlivening songs and outrageous sketches, all the while motivating kids to pick up a pencil and write down their own fantastic adventures. Story topics run the gamut, from Kung Fu ninja babies fighting crime to cats flying and tickle monsters that rule the world!
Story Pirates has been committed to providing high quality arts education to children since 2003. Their Play/Write Program began as a pilot in a single low-income Harlem school and has grown to become a nationally respected creative writing and drama curriculum in place annually at over 100 schools across the country. Their assemblies and performances have been recognized and sponsored by partners such as Penguin Books, theaters like the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., and on respected television programs such as The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Story Pirates' curriculum focuses on core elements of national standards for Arts Education and English Language Arts, while providing rich cultural experiences that push the boundaries of traditional enrichment to tackle substantive educational goals like vocabulary development, story structure, revision, and confident self-expression. Over the past six years, Story Pirates has invited tens of thousands of students to see their own words and ideas come to life on stage, and watched as, one by one, these children began to call themselves writers.
