Viking Story Pirates" Tell Stories for Kids
By Kids at MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Feb. 28
It's a world
where cats sometimes fly, the sky may rain fish, and tickle monsters
can be a pesky annoyance. The "Striking Viking Story Pirates"
come to Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre with stories
for children written by children on Saturday, Feb. 28, 2 p.m. and
4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is conveniently located on Mercer's West
Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Committed to the belief that every child has a story to tell, this
professional New York City arts education organization use stories
from elementary school students as source material for outrageous,
over-the-top, side-splitting musical plays. Adding songs, props,
music videos and puppets, the Story Pirates present sketches on
a range of zany topics from kung-fu ninja babies fighting crime
to the day a doughnut machine comes to life. Parents will laugh
right along with their youngsters as the pirates go to work in their
hilarious hour-long revue.
Founded in 2003, the Story Pirates present award-winning shows,
original web content, and creative writing programs to tens of thousands
of children nationwide each year. With a mission that celebrates
the words and ideas of young people, the group works to create confident,
literate students and encourage them to develop into more thoughtful,
