How I Became a Pirate

Based on the beloved children’s book by Melinda Long, How I Became a Pirate gives kids a musical crash course in some important subjects: pirate manners, parrot care, dental hygiene, and even the value of family. Captain Braid Beard and his gang of tried-and-true pirates recruits Jacob Jeremy after spying him digging in the sand—just the sort of skill that’s needed when you have treasure to bury or retrieve. Soon the boy is learning the ropes with the help of mischievous songs such as “You’ve Got to Talk Like a Pirate,” “Green Teeth,” and “Pirates Don’t Aaargh!” Audiences can expect the same kind of fun, thoroughly family-friendly storytelling that performance company Etico Productions has displayed in its popular adaptations of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and planetary etiquette manual Good Night Moon.

Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts

Productions of all creative stripes grace the stages of the four venues that make up the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. The classical Memorial Auditorium serves as a sparkling centerpiece, a chandelier-bedecked hall that has seen the likes of Frank Sinatra, Itzhak Perlman, and Prince perform since its doors first opened in 1932. The intimate Fletcher Opera Theater hosts the Carolina Ballet between seasonal migrations, while the Meymandi Concert Hall’s rich, warm acoustics make it the ideal home for the North Carolina Symphony. More experimental plays and pieces can be found at the newest space, the Kennedy Theater.
