Posted July 8, 2014
Storybook Theater opens "How I Became a Pirate" on Wednesday with a ticket deal.
Tickets will be $10 for the 10:30 a.m., Wednesday (as in tomorrow, July 9) show at the Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh. Tickets for the show, which runs through July 20, are normally $14 or $19.
The same $10 deal also is offered for the 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, July 16, show. The shows aren't on the public schedule because they are intended for large groups.
You'll need to pay for your tickets with cash only at the box office when you get there.
This live show is part of Storybook Theater, which benefits Marbles Kids Museum. It's based on the popular children's book of the same name.
Here's a description: "Young Jeremy Jacob is digging in the sand 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 out of a pirate's life at sea. In turn, Jeremy shares with them what a typical kid's day is like and the wondrous game of soccer! When a storm arises, the skills of the crew are called upon to steer the ship to safety and they arrive back at the beach in time for soccer practice. They reminisce that it's always good to go home and Jeremy realizes that the simple things in life, like a kiss and a warm tucking in at night, are among those that are most important. Parting is bittersweet, but before leaving, the pirates assure Jeremy that they will be back if he ever needs them. He only has to fly the Jolly Roger!"
