A story of adventure and finding one’s own heart, How I Became a Pirate is based on a children’s book by Melinda Long with illustrations by David Shannon. Captain Braid Beard recruits Young Jeremy Jacob and his amazing sand-digging skills to help find the perfect digging spot for the pirate treasure. Captain Braid Beard introduces the boy to his pirate crew, showing him the often-surprising ins-and-outs of life at sea. In return, Jeremy shows the pirates the joys of being a kid, especially the thrills of the game of soccer. Jeremy soon realizes the riches in life are the little things he misses, like being tucked in at night with a kiss and being at home with his family.

How I Became a Pirate is performed by arrangement with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and The Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. Itfirst premiered at First Stage Children’s Theatre in Milwaukee. Tickets for the general public are $20, with discounts offered to senior citizens, students, employees and alumni. Season ticket packages are also available.
