Down on their luck, Enid Arabella’s parents have to send her away in order to survive. But Enid Arabella refuses to be stuck in some home for children, so she runs off and is captured by the horrible pirate Captain Johnny Johne and his young crew. Using her wits, Enid Arabella not only evades an early demise, but tricks the Captain into falling off the ship. Hooray!
Now on their own, the child pirates claim themselves to be buccaneers and make Enid Arabella their captain. But Captain Johnny Johne has other plans… This rousing pirate musical, with a score drawn from sea shanties and music from around the world, is an inspiring tale of empowerment and leadership—with plenty of swashbuckling to boot.
“Buccaneers is definitely see-worthy. The show has engaging themes and a spunky heroine.” – MN Star Tribune
