"Shiver me timbers! If ye be havin’ the gall to look across the briny deep, ye’ll be seein’ such a booty that would make even the queen blush. Methinks me might be seein’ the mother lode right here in me ol’ spyglass!"
Make your next Christmas program sparkle with this incredibly fun royalty-free play! Written by a National Board Certified Teacher in elementary music, this play will delight your audience and your students with its pirate lingo and exciting plot! Our plays are comprised of five or more scenes that are designed to fit in between musical performances by different grade levels or groups of singers. You may not have that many singing groups. No problem!! Simply run two scenes back to back. Or should you just want a great little play for your upper elementary or middle school students, you can perform these scenes simply as a play, without the musical groups. This format allows you, the director, the flexibility to choose the music you want and still give your students the chance to experience the magic of theatre!
Merry Christmas, me Hearties! synopsis:
Eliza can’t believe her own eyes! Right there in her spyglass is a big red sleigh just waiting to be pilfered! Captain Greybeard comes along just in time to fix his gaze upon the large and amazin’ treasure and calls for the mates to quickly hoist the mizzen! While Santa and the elves hurriedly load the sleigh, the pirates burst in and surprise them, taking everything. But afterward, the thrill of the lootin’ just isn’t there and Eliza confronts the Cap’n with their error in judgment.. Together they nostalgically remember Christmas past and the jolly ol’ creature who brought them the spoils of his bag. With a change of heart and just in the nick of time, the pirates return the stolen booty. Because time is so very short, the pirates agree to help Santa by commandeering their ship to deliver toys to the South Pacific. Later they all meet back at the Pole for the Christmas pageant. “Yo, ho, ho, ho, over the raging sea we go!”
