+ About the Performance
This program was recorded 10/03/2015 at Symphony Space.

Using stories submitted by children, the Story Pirates create outlandishly funny sketches and mini-musicals that leave kids and their parents howling in the aisles! Whether it's following the adventures of a superhero baby, or reminiscing about disposable rain ponchos at a baseball game, the songs and stories explode with the creative energy that only a child could possess.

Story Pirates was founded in 2004 to celebrate the words, ideas, and stories of young people. Since their first pilot program in a single Harlem school, Story Pirates has invited tens of thousands of students to see their words and ideas come to life on stage. They've watched as, one by one, these children began to call themselves writers.

"Only a kid could write a story like 'The Do-Do Bird and the Dead People' - but only the Story Pirates could stage it, complete with puppets, 'Thriller'-esque dancing zombies and funny lyrics that have children (and adults) begging for more." -New York Post
