Set sail with a madcap, swashbuckling comedy variety show for the whole family. Touring to theaters and family festivals nationwide, PIRATE SCHOOL! has captivated adventure-questing kids and their parents with it’s slapstick antics, adept magic, cartoon-like sound effects, eye-popping puppetry, eccentric props and active, full-audience participation. During the show kids learn the finer points of mischief and become "good pirates" cooperating and carousing together while getting the chance to live out their dreams of the Golden Age of the Buccaneer!

Featured in New York Magazine's "BEST OF NY: KIDS!” veteran New York-based family entertainer David Engel is the bumbling pirate Billy Bones who lives to teach zany lessons on how to stand, talk, laugh, eat and carouse like boisterous buccaneers. Pirate School! is sure to satisfy the courageous corsair in all who dare to attend. Welcome aboard!

Suggested audience: Ages 4 and up. Kids are encouraged to attend in costume.

Tickets are available at the door. Doors open at 2:30pm for 3pm show.

To The Pennsbury School District
  • This season’s school residency, held in October 2014, will feature David Gonzalez, a nationally acclaimed storyteller and musician. He will perform at each of Pennsbury’s 10 elementary schools in a series of 12 assemblies.
    David Gonzalez is a one-of-a-kind artist. He has created numerous productions combining compelling drama, music, and multi-media, all of which enchant audiences nationwide with stories of love, hope, courage, and wisdom. David will be bringing three of his programs to Pennsbury schools: Maddog and Me: Bullying and the Power of Kindness, which addresses the issue of bullying; Aesop Bops!, a fun- filled interactive show featuring a potpourri of Aesop's classic stories, including The Lion and the Mouse and others; and Cuentos, Tales from the Latino World. Cuentos paints a vivid picture of the people and rich cultures of the Spanish-speaking world with colorful tales from the Caribbean, South America, and the Bronx! BCPAC is extremely excited to offer this opportunity for creative learning to our Pennsbury students.
