Anchors away and set sail for swashbuckling pirate adventure on the high seas in this piratical musical that’s sure to shake your booty!
Young twins Jack & Liza Periwinkle yearn for adventure, so imagine their joy at discovering a real life treasure map! But when the infamous Redbeard and his pungent Pirates of the Curry Bean steal the map and kidnap their mother, the race is on to rescue her, reclaim the map and find the treasure. Accompanied by their faithful cat Fiddlesticks, the twins join a mad admiral and his crazy crew on a voyage of adventure that takes them from Old London Docks to the mysterious island of Lumbago in the sea of Sciatica. Will they be first to find the treasure chest or is a surprise awaiting them that’s even better than gold? With colourful characters, sparkling songs and a witty script as sharp as a cutlass, this show is dripping with piratical style!
Comprises: 38 speaking roles + 6 non-speaking roles (easily expanded or reduced) with unlimited chorus parts. Easy to stage and costume. CD of Vocal Tracks and CD of Backing Tracks available (no pianist required!). Both of the CDs include Overture, ALL Songs, Special Effects, Play Ons and Play Offs in the order you need them, enabling production and direction to take place without specialist musical expertise!
A BRAND NEW product called "Sing it!" is now available to accompany Pirates Of The Curry Bean. This CD-ROM teaches the songs to the children without any teacher input. Children can use it at school or at home (think of the time it will save you!). Children LOVE learning this way and the product is foolproof. Just give it to the children and they’ll do the rest. For more details about the new "Sing it!" CD-ROM, please see the video below (well worth watching).
Also available is a CD-ROM of Backdrops, which contains instant scenery with digital backdrops supplied in both a PowerPoint presentation and as individual JPG files. No more scenery painting! These images may be projected onto a screen or wall at the back of your stage or hand them to a local printer to print onto large boards or sheets in order to create your stage backdrops. They're also useful to print off for cast and stage crew to familiarise themselves with the sets and scene changes. The CD-ROM of Backdrops contains a different backdrop for every scene change.
