Kit’s Interactive Theatre – “Grace the Pirate”
Grace the Pirate reveals the more whimsical aspects of pirate life. From the beginning, Grace O'Malley establishes her student crew and the rules for sailing aboard her vessel. With the aid of her newly 'recruited' quartermaster, boatswain and crew, Grace sets off with map in hand to find the treasure of Blackbeard the Pirate. Once at sea, she entertains her crew with one of their favorite folktales. However, the crew hasn't sailed for long before the dreaded Blackbeard appears. A friendly struggle of wits, dancing skills and athletic competitions ensues to determine who shall win the treasure map. The two mighty pirates finally agree to work together to find the treasure and the booty is shared by all.
