Rose Theatre Kingston and Nick Brooke Productions Ltd today announce the cast for the world première of The Night Pirates, adapted from the best-selling children’s book by Peter Harris and Deborah Allwright.
Miranda Larson directs Charlotte Cooper (Storyteller One), Will Jennings (Storyteller Three), Victoria Lucie (Storyteller Two) and Jack McNeill (Tom). The production will be at the Rose from Wed 6 - Sat 16 Sep.
One night, young Tom is awoken by noises outside his house. He peeps out of the window and what should he see but PIRATES… and stranger still - they're GIRL PIRATES stealing the front of his house! Tom joins their adventure across the high seas to an island where some rather lazy and silly grown-up pirates are guarding their treasure. What could possibly happen when the young pirates make a surprise attack on the lazy Captain Patch and his bumbling crew?
This irresistibly charming modern-day classic combines original songs and swashbuckling adventures. Suitable for any budding young pirates up to 6 years old.
