Notes regarding time

6:30 PM nightly with a 2:00 PM Saturday matinee


Set in an era when women were not allowed to act, and men had to play female roles, Lord Cranbury’s traveling company of scallywag actors can’t seem to get their big break! If only he knew that five members of his troupe are actually women... playing men who play female roles!

But that’s not why their traveling show is failing. Could it be because some don’t bother to learn their lines? Or suffer from terrible stage fright? Certainly, it’s not because star actor Victor Thatcher, who is actually demanding diva Vivian Thatcher, keeps changing the play to suit his (or rather, her) mood, is it? Realizing the troupe needs radical revitalizing, Cranbury decides to buy a ship and set sail with his thespian crew. After all, if they are going to do a play about pirates, they should experience the real thing! (It’s method acting, after all!)

But the ocean is no place for landlubbers: Captain Reagan O’Flynn doesn’t take kindly to other buccaneers in her territory. And the French naval commander, Capitaine Haute-Valois, happens to be hunting for pirates to bring to justice. But worst of all is the mysterious Murdock, who takes no prisoners in his quest to conquer the high seas. Can the rag-tag group of pedestrian players find their sea legs in time to avoid Davy Jones’s locker?

Story and Script written by Patrick Derksen. Produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Denver, Colorado. The show contains stage combat and may contain smoke/fog effects, flashing/strobing lights, and loud sounds.
