Story Pirates

Grades K-6

Improv comedy gets an educational twist as the Story Pirates create outlandishly funny sketches and mini-musicals using wildly imaginative stories written by kids. Described as “Monty Python meets Schoolhouse Rock,” a Story Pirates performance leaves students and teachers howling in the aisles. Don’t miss the sensation sweeping the nation that showcases the importance of creative writing and imagination… especially when the audience participates in making a live, original story!

“Students can be authors of their own great stories!”

– 3rd grade teacher, Lincoln Elementary School
