Climb on board and get ready for adventure in The Secret Theatre's new children's musical, "Pirate Pete's Parrot." In the tradition of the wildly popular English pantomime shows (first produced in the 1700's, and still popular today), Pirate Pete's Parrot promises music, mischief, and a boatload of laughs for both children and adults.
The play revolves around Pirate Pete, a lovable rogue on a mission to find his beloved runaway parrot, Polly (who prefers pancakes to boring old birdseed). Upon setting out, Pete decides it can't hurt to pick up some buried treasure either, to help make the month's rent. Armed with an endearing crew of misfits like Jolly Roger (the insufferably happy second mate) and Miroslav the Czech mate (get it?), Pete embarks on a journey complete with songs, sword fights, and plenty of audience interaction. Says writer and star Richard Mazda, "The show is so much fun to do. One of my favorite things is seeing the parents enjoy it as much as the kids."
Indeed, children and adults will find a lot to love in this quirky production!
