Pirates are Invading Allentown and Staying for Brunch!
Pirates are Invading Allentown and Staying for Brunch!

Theatre of Youth proudly opens How I Became a Pirate on Friday, May 13th, 2011 at 7:00pm and runs Saturdays and Sundays (5/14, 5/15, 5/21, 5/22) at 2:00 pm.  Young Jeremy Jacobs and his exceptional digging skills are recruited by Captain Braid Beard for treasure burying purposes. Jeremy thinks the pirate life is for him, until he realizes that the simple things in life, like a kiss and a warm tucking in at night are those that are most important.  How I Became a Pirate is a wonderfully fun musical adventure about finding one’s own heart – a path that can’t be found on a treasure map.

The cast of pirates from How I Became a Pirate will be invading Allen Street and searching for the perfect treasure chest digger to join their crew!  They will be stopping on their journey at the Quaker Bonnet, located at 175 Allen Street during a special brunch that will kick off the May 15, 2011 performance.

Participants will meet at The Quaker Bonnet for a pirate-themed brunch of: Pirate Pancakes, Scallywag Scramble, Plank Potatoes, Shipshape Salad, Sandy-wich. For those that get parched they can partake in some Grog (green orange juice), Pirate Poison (blue milk), or for the adults Sea Sludge (coffee) to keep your spirits up! 

There will be a scavenger hunt, activities and treasures to be won!  Additionally there will be a special visit from the costumed cast of How I Became a Pirate to sign autographs.  The brunch ends at 1:30, just in time to walk the short distance to the theatre and enjoy the show!

Packages for a family of four are available and include; four places at the brunch and four tickets to the May 15, 2011 matinee performance at a discounted price of $120.00, that’s a tickets savings of $12.00!  Individual brunch/show tickets are available for $33.00/pp.  Tickets to the brunch alone are $15.00/pp.  Registrations are limited and all children must be accompanied by an adult.  Participants are asked to register and call in their menu choices by May 3, 2011 to the TOY Box Office at 716-884-4400 x304. Prior sales are excluded.
