David Engel performs one-man family vaudeville show, PIRATE SCHOOL! aboard the historic Waterfront Museum Showboat Barge on one-day only, tonight, May 12, 2012 at 1 & 4 pm. Note that this show aboard the Waterfront Museum normally in Red Hook will be docked at Hudson River Park Pier 25 at the foot of N. Moore Street.
PIRATE SCHOOL! is a mischievous blend of clown theater, magic, zany musical score and boisterous full-audience participation.
During PIRATE SCHOOL! Billy Bones teaches youngsters how to be good pirates with lessons on how to stand, talk, sing and laugh like Buccaneers; cannons boom, skulls talk, cutlasses drop and pets run amok. PIRATE SCHOOL! aims to satisfy children’s universal curiosity about the briny Buccaneers of yore while subtly boosting their self-esteem and prompting them to be more empathetic, responsible and courageous.
