SFCC Presents “How I Became A Pirate” for Area Children [INTERVIEW]

How I Became a Pirate

If there’s one thing that kids love, it’s fantastical adventure.  The world of make believe that’s far removed from our lives of chores, homework and brussel sprouts is always something that kids will love.  So that’s why I thought we should let you guys know all about the new State Fair Community College production of “How I Became a Pirate.”

The story involves a kid named Jeremy Jacob, who is is digging in the sand at North Beach when he is greeted by Captain Braid Beard and his mates and is recruited to help find the perfect digging spot for their treasure. Jeremy is instructed on how to talk like a pirate and schooled in pirate manners and etiquette (or the lack thereof). In turn, Jeremy shares with them what a typical kid’s day is like and the wondrous game of soccer!

I got to talk with Eric Yazell from the SFCC Theater along with several of the cast.  Included are Michael Miller (Sharktooth), Dalton Grafton (Jeremy), Matt Murphy (Scurvy Dog), Jessica Borchardt (Simone), Mary Conlin (Maxine) and Stephanie Schumacher, the dance choreographer behind the scenes.  They talked about what fun the kids can have and when the shows are going on.

The shows are totally fun and appropriate for kids and the whole family, so make sure you check it out for yourself. Make sure you keep your eye out for the productions at the schools Nov. 18-22, or see the public show at the Stauffacher Theatre on Nov. 23 at 2:00 p.m.

To purchase tickets, call the Box Office at (660) 596-7387 from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and two hours prior to the performance. You can also e-mail or visit their website at SFCC Theater to get more information.

Pirate-ly yours,
