“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!
