“How I Became a Pirate” at Adventure Theatre — Ticket Giveaway!



Adventure Theatre is kicking off its 2017-18 season with fun, swashbuckling entertainment! How I Became a Pirate will sail onto the stage this fall with a production recommended for all ages. And you have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see a performance!

Based on the book by Melinda Long and directed by Jenny Male, the show follows the journey of a boy named Jeremy as he becomes an honorary pirate after a ship comes ashore while he’s building sandcastles on the beach. Jeremy learns the ropes of what it really means to be a swashbuckling (but smelly!) pirate — and the pirates just might learn how to play soccer, too.

How I Became a Pirate is running at Adventure Theatre September 22 – October 22, with both weekend and weekday performances. Tickets are $19.50 and can be purchased in advance online, at the Box Office, or by calling 301.634.2270. You can also try to win them through the giveaway below!

Based on the book series by Barbara Park and directed by Rick Hammerly, this stage version presents a tale for all ages to enjoy: When Junie B. Jones, with her two bestest friends in the world, loses her new furry mittens to some “stealers,” she has to investigate. But Junie B. might have something she forgot to return, too…

There’s more to enjoy than just a performance — patrons can also partake in a pre-show scavenger hunt to earn a prize. Participants who find all of the items will receive a Junie B. Jones set of five trading cards for our 65th season.

Adventure Theatre is also partnering with a local nonprofit to collect school supplies for underprivileged kids throughout the run of the show. When you go see it, consider bringing donations of new backpacks, notebooks, colored pencils, crayons, kid-friendly scissors, paper, glue sticks, markers, and activity books to help out children in need.

Adventure Theatre is getting ready to debut a new production just in time to have a cozy indoor activity during the thick of winter. Ella Enchanted, running February 3 – March 19 is a show the whole family can enjoy. And KFDC readers have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see it!

Based on the Newberry Honor book by Gail Carson Levine, Ella Enchanted tells the tale of Baby Ella of Frell, who is given the “gift” of obedience by Lucinda, a misguided fairy, and thus cannot disobey any direct order. Then when tragedy strikes, Ella is reduced to an obedient servant in her new home with Dame Olga. Can Ella find a way to rid herself of the troublesome curse?

See the show to find out! Tickets for Ella Enchanted are $19.50 and available for purchase online and at the Box Office (I recommend getting them in advance, as shows often sell out). You can also try to win them through the giveaway below.
