REVIEWS


“At heart Uncle Pirate proves more of a Boy Scout than a buccaneer, but that won’t distress theatergoers under 12, this diverting and often funny musical’s ideal audience … Theatergoers at a recent performance particularly enjoyed a classroom duel in which Uncle Pirate bravely wields first a pointer, then a ruler and finally a book. Education, it seems, really is the way to win life’s battles” ~ The New York Times


“There’s a talking penguin and plenty of ‘arrrs!’ for the young’uns, while elementary schoolers Buy Now Green Button Png - Free Transparent PNG Download ...and their parents will appreciate the sarcastic dialogue and clever songs … a whimsical adaptation of the eponymous kids book is Jolly Roger fun” ~ Time Out, New York
