‘How I Became a Pirate’ Comes to Cape May on August 4

How I became a Pirate

The children’s musical How I Became a Pirate comes ashore for one performance on Sunday, August 4 at 10:30 a.m.  Pirates will take over Cape May Convention Hall at 714 Beach Ave. in Cape May, but don’t worry, they are friendly pirates!

Young Jeremy Jacob is digging in the sands of Cape May 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 outs of a pirate’s life at sea. Jeremy is instructed on how to talk like a pirate and schooled in pirate manners and etiquette (or the lack thereof). In turn, Jeremy shares with them what a typical kid’s day is like and the wondrous game of soccer!

This high-energy musical is written by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman and is based upon the book “How I Became a Pirate” Written by Melinda Long and Illustrations by David Shannon. The Greater Ocean City Theatre Company is thrilled to bring their touring children’s theatre experience to Cape May through this very special collaboration.

Kids coming to the show are invited to come dressed as a pirate! Photo opportunities with the cast will follow the show. Tickets are $10 general admission and can be purchased by calling 609-884-9565 or visiting CapeMayCity.com.
