What do you get when you mix a group of pirates, a carefree surfer, a mermaid and a talking Octopus? Why, Rainbow Puppet Productions “A Pirate Party,” of course! The show is a happy salute to beach movies of the 1960’s. It doesn’t make a lot of sense but it sure is a lot of fun with the audience joining in on a pirate shout-out contest and a big dance at the finale.
The show features vocal performances from the late Movie legend Mickey Rooney and his wife Jan. The couple also starred in the company’s 100th Anniversary Production of “Toyland!”
As a very special surprise treat, Broadway legend Carol Channing crashes the party by providing the voice to a bejeweled Octopus! Along the way, she plugs her own upcoming Rainbow show "The Broadway Adventures of Chessie the Manatee." Tickets are $5 and may be purchased in advance at the ticket office at RIFP or the day of the event. Ages 5 and under are free. This production is sponsored, in part, by Friends of Elizabeth II. www.Roanokeisland.com
August 5, 6 and 7 at 10:30 am in the Indoor Theatre at Roanoke Island Festival Park.
