Pirate Musical Closes Out Summer Theatre

The summer’s final production at Hutton’s Hamlet in Oakdale will be performed on Friday, Aug. 2 and Saturday, Aug. 3.

Come enjoy the ‘Adventures of the Fearsome Pirate Frank’ with tickets available at $10 for adults and $5 for those 12 and under. Tickets are on sale at the Hutton’s Hamlet music store, 149 Church Ave., Oakdale.

Who knew the pirate craze dated back to Shakespearean times? Apparently, the star of a popular pirate play – The Fearsome Pirate Frank – is the teenage heartthrob of every girl in Shakespearean England, even though he can never remember his lines. However, when the actor playing Frank and his supporting cast, including prima donna Esmerelda, are kidnapped by real pirates during one of their productions, they become enslaved on a real pirate ship. Pirate actors take orders from the real pirate Frank, who is a woman! But pirate actors are not the only ones hijacked in this caper ... so is the plot from a particularly popular pirate flick.

This musical comedy features a crew of nightmare sailors, zombie pirates, singing sirens, and even Spiderman.

This is the fifth and final play of the summer at the local youth theatre. Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2 with two shows, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., on Saturday, Aug. 3.
