A Swashbuckling Pirate and Princess Adventure!

The sun is finally shining and it’s time for a fun family day at The Public Theatre, as we present the Crabgrass Puppet Theatre’s wonderfully imaginative The Pirate, the Princess and the Pea, Sunday, May 18 at 2:00PM. This story will thrill children of all ages as we set off on an amazing voyage chock full of sea monsters, surprises and side-splitting excitement!

Meet the pirate: "A pirate’s life isn’t all 'yo-ho-ho and a bottle of grog, it’s hard work.” And the princess: "The palace is all tuffets and tea parties, I'm ready for some adventure!”

The Princess finds a treasure map. The Pirate wants the treasure map. As they race to find the treasure they run into big trouble like “escaping from sea monsters” and “falling overboard”. Though the Princess manages to stay one step ahead of the Pirate, can she get him out of the way long enough to dive for the treasure? And when suddenly she’s is in danger from a giant octopus, they quickly forget their differences and discover the benefits of cooperation. Inspired by their success, the Pirate and his new Princess friend sail off together in search of new adventures.

Audience members from around the country rave about The Pirate, the Princess and the Pea. "This show is fantastic! I loved it and so did the kids.” “Expertly crafted and performed!"
