Story Pirates’ teaching artists guide the action, seeking inspiration and ideas for their interactive show from the children in the audience. The Story Pirates play colorful characters who sing, dance and improv their way through never-before (and never-again!) seen adventures. Restrooms are available at the comfort station!
