Pirate Pete’s Parrot
Pirate Pete’s in a bind: his BFF, the pancake-loving parrot Polly, has flown away. To uncover her whereabouts, he enlists the help of his colorful crewmates, including the exhaustingly enthusiastic Jolly Roger, and Miroslav—who pun fans will recognize as the ship’s Czech mate. Along the way, Pete decides he might as well pick up some buried treasure to help pay the rent he owes to Baron Big Butt. Produced in the gleeful style of traditional English pantomime, this musical layers dance breaks, sword fights, and audience interaction as Pirate Pete encounters lions with standup dreams, henchmen who love to make an entrance, and plenty of other adventures.
Many kids dream of being princes or princesses. But what do princes and princesses dream of? In the case of Princess Particular, she wants to be a ballerina—much to the chagrin of her parents, King Loadsadough and Queen Bea. Though the king and queen implore her to attend to her royal responsibilities, the princess finds support from some of her fellow castle residents: the chancellor, her lady in waiting, and four maids. Through songs, scenes, and plenty of silliness, this musical chronicles the unexpected aspirations of someone who seems to already have everything.
The Secret Theatre
With its prolific events, its close proximity to Silvercup Studios and MoMa’s PS1, and its big sign out front, The Secret Theatre is really anything but secret. The facility’s two theaters host performances that range from improv and musicals to opera and dance, and its multimedia gear makes it the chosen venue for film festivals and parties, too. While some artists rent its space, others, such as resident company The Queens Players, call The Secret home.
