Family Series begins with ‘Pirate School!’

pirate-schoolPirate School! is a madcap, swashbuckling solo variety show created and performed by veteran New York physical comedian and actor David Engel. Now in its 24th season, Pirate School! has delighted thousands of families with a mischievous blend of improvisational clown theater and its signature brand of boisterous full-audience participation.  Parents marvel as their kids become “good pirates,” swaggering out of the theater transformed by this heartwarming family show.

During Pirate School! the bumbling pirate professor Billy Bones, played by David Engel, teaches youngsters ages four and up the finer points of light-hearted mischief. The audience partakes in riotous, joyful competitions that rattle the rafters and zany lessons on how to stand, talk, sing and laugh like jaunty Buccaneers.
