THE Australian Shakespeare Company is returning to the Mornington Peninsula over the school holidays with its new show, Captain Jack’s Pirate Party.
In addition to four shows at The Briars, Mount Martha, there will be two shows at the Police Point Shire Park, Portsea.
Billed as the craziest and colourful pirates of the Caribbean, Captain Jack’s Pirate Party battles for booty from passing merchant ships and living the pirate life to the full. The interactive theatre performance incudes pirate talk, pirate songs and a hunt for lost treasure.
The 70-minute production has sword fights, songs and hearty pirate action.
The shows will be performed outdoors, so the audience should dress for the weather. Suitable for children of all ages.
Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Steve Holland said Police Point and The Briars would “come to life with family-friendly entertainment”.
“Bring a picnic and make a day of it,” he said.
Captain Jack’s Pirate Party will be performed at Police Point 10.30am and 1.30pm on Sunday 17 September and Monday 18 September and at The Briars 10.30am and 1.30pm on Tuesday 19 September.
