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.”
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!
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.
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.
