It’s a pirate’s life for us!

To distract the boys from their father’s trip up north I reserved a spot at the South Carolina Children’s Theatre production of Ahoy Mateys! Pirate Party. Billed as “a chance for your very special youngster to wear their very finest pirate attire and attend a very fun and active event… a fun filled hour of pirate skills and sword fighting, a pirate story, and pirate grub.”

The biggest clue they know what they are doing? I was reminded three separate times to please not bring your own swords as swords will be provided… What they didn’t tell me was that the boys would get to keep their swords!

The Theatre is located on the West End, convenient in location and with a back lot for parking. We had a grand time singing, dancing, sword fighting and reading along with Captain Sparrow and her gang, and although Lauris wasn’t ready to go up front with the rest of the swashbuckling crew, we enjoyed ourselves just the same. The first mates were fed snacks at the hour’s end, and soon we were walking the plank back to the car.

The South Carolina Children’s Theatre’s next production is Annie (September 6-22) but eventually the pirates will be back for Jingle Arrrgh the Way! A Christmas Pirate Adventure.
