How I Became a Pirate

Omaha Theater Company

2 p.m. Sunday, February 24
Eisenhower Auditorium

Best-selling author Melinda Long’s swashbuckling treasure hunt How I Became a Pirate comes to the stage in an Omaha Theater Company musical production. Spellbinding storytelling, irresistible songs, and bold choreography combine to take audiences on a “journey through the high seas.” The tale of young Jeremy Jacobs and his encounter with Captain Braid Beard brims with adventure as the lad embarks on a quest for buried treasure and learns about pirate customs. “One of the things that pirates represent for kids is a life free from care, a life of giddy abandon, where you can do whatever you want,” says the show’s director Rob Urbinati. “I want Pirate to have that kind of exuberance, and that’s what I want the audience — both children and adults — to experience.” One of the oldest, largest, and most respected children’s theatrical organizations in the United States, Omaha Theater Company was founded in 1949.
