+ About the Performance
This program was recorded 10/01/2011 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.

"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
