“Gangway, Pirates of the Caribbean—here comes The Lady Pirates of Captain Bree! When his crew jumps ship upon sighting the pirates in the distance, Captain Jennings is left with a makeshift crew of motley prisoners and Fergus, a sailor who can't swim, to protect his wealthy passengers, the Prescots, from the inevitable attack. As the lady pirates take over the defenseless Kayla May, you're in for swashbuckling musical comedy with a host of hysterical characters on deck and a spectacular Bill Francoeur score. Along with Captain Bree's hearty crew, you'll find the haughty Professor Bidwell and the pretentious Madam Prescot constantly battling for special treatment and respect (ha!). You will love the swashbuckling ending as the two captains work together to save their crews from the British.
Bill Francoeur's zesty music adds the perfect touch of authenticity to this spirited pirate play. From the suspense of "The Plank" to the belly laughs of "Shipshape and Bristol Fashion", you will be humming the catchy sea shanties, including "Welcome Aboard!" and "They're a Nasty Lot."
