Through workshops students gain experience and knowledge in acting techniques, improvisation, characterization, movement, props, scenery, and much more. Production workshops conclude with a final performance on the Main Stage of the Children’s Theatre of Annapolis.

A PIRATE ADVENTURE     By Charlotte Nixon

This goofy pirate play is a treasure chest full of silliness with synchronized swimming mermaids, ghosts, smugglers, and lobsters as comic stagehands! As the famous pirate Long John Silver lies on his deathbed, he sends for his sons, Red Beard and Black Beard, and his daughter, No Beard. Alas, his offspring didn’t inherit their father’s pirating skills! Luckily, each bumbling pirate has a “smee” as an assistant, because their father sends them off to find the three keys to the treasure chest that holds his life’s treasure. The children and their respective smees dash off to adventures, for whoever finds the keys first will inherit the booty!
