A live version of the popular children's book "How I Became a Pirate" is headed to Raleigh's Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts next month!
The performance, part of the Storybook Theater series for families, will be on stage at the Fletcher Theater July 9 to July 20. Tickets start at $14 each. The series benefits Marbles Kids Museum. Check Duke Energy Center's website for details.
Here's a description of the show: "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."
We're giving away tickets to the 6:30 p.m., July 11, performance!
