I really enjoyed the show. My three children loved it. This is great for children ages 4 through about 10 but even my 13yr old daughter thought it was really good and that says alot if a teenage enjoyed it.

The beginning was ok, but the acting was not really engaging (especially the main character Jeremy) and the main theme was not flushed out in dramatic enough fashion. The other litmus test result was neither of my kids talked about it after wards...continued

Based on the book by Melinda Long and David Shannon

Adapted by Alyn Cardarelli

Music and Lyrics by Alyn Cardarelli and Steve Goers

Directed by Helena Nolan

When a band of pirates needs a new crew member, young Jeremy Jacob jumps at the chance.  He quickly discovers the challenges of life on a pirate ship—storms, swabbing the decks, walking the plank, mutiny. But it is hidden treasure that keeps a pirate’s life exciting!  Jeremy learns there is treasure to be found not only on a pirate ship but also at home. This musical version of the American Library Association’s selection for a Notable Children’s Book Award will thrill pirates and landlubbers alike.

For ages 4 and up.
