AHOY, MATEY! When Captain Braid Beard and his crew invite Jeremy Jacob to join their voyage, it's the swashbuckling time of his life! No vegetables or table manners, and you get to have sword fights wherever you want. But Jeremy soon misses things like getting tucked into bed, goodnight kisses, and story time. A heave-go, blow-the-man-down tale you won't want to miss!

Performed by arrangement with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and the Sandra Dijkstra Literacy Agency, "How I Became A Pirate" received its received its world premiere at First Stage Children's Theatre, Milwaukee, WI.
