STORYBOOK THEATER PRODUCTION OF “HOW I BECAME A PIRATE”

TO HOLD LOCAL AUDITIONS

The upcoming Storybook Theater production of How I Became A Pirate in partnership with Broadway Series South, will host auditions on Friday, May 16, 2014 for regional actors. The show will play the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts July 9-20, 2014.

Young Jeremy Jacob is digging in the sand when he is greeted by Captain Braid Beard and his mates, and is recruited to help find the perfect digging spot for their treasure. Boarding the ship, the Captain introduces the boy to his pirate crew who share with him the ins’ and out of a pirate's life at sea.  In turn, Jeremy shares with them what a typical kid's day is like and the wondrous game of soccer!  When a storm arises, the skills of the crew are called upon to steer the ship to safety and they arrive back at the beach in time for soccer practice.  They reminisce that it's always good to go home and Jeremy realizes that the simple things in life, like a kiss and a warm tucking in at night, are among those that are most important.  Parting is bittersweet, but before leaving, the pirates assure Jeremy that they will be back if he ever needs them.  He only has to fly the Jolly Roger!
