Lady Pirates of the Caribbean coming up

The Maranatha Players are proudly presenting the musical Lady Pirates of the Caribbean during the first two weeks in December.

With the Studio Theatre’s dinner theatre wrapping up this weekend, theatre lovers will be glad to know that another fun live stage event is on the horizon.

The Maranatha Players are proudly presenting the musical Lady Pirates of the Caribbean during the first two weeks in December.

As always the Maranatha Christian School players present a polished production with great singing and theatrics directed by Becky Strickland.

Lady Pirates of the Caribbean was written by Craig Sodaro with music and lyrics by Bill Francouer.

With lively songs, comic dance and plenty of action the play promises to be a “blast” for performers and audience alike as a band of lady pirates outthinks and outfights their male counterparts.

Nine zesty songs add energy and fun to the story of how the Lawless Ladies recover the Queen’s chest of gold doubloons sent to feed starving orphans.

The show’s nine songs include: Lady of the Sweet Trade, The Pink Pelican, Señoritas from Madrid, A Full House in the Dungeon, Ghost Ship in the Night and more!

Lady Pirates of the Caribbean runs at the school Dec. 4, 5, and 6  at 7 p.m. each evening; Dec. 11 and 12 at 7 p.m. each evening and wraps up on Dec. 13 with two shows, a matinee at 1 p.m. and the evening show at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available at The Open Book; $8 for students and seniors and $10 for adults.
