Plunder & Lightning:
A Pirate's Life

Sponsored by

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes — and it ain't always what we're expectin'...

A brand new stage experience built on an original script, music, and cast that’s part rock show, part musical theater, all pirates!

Plunder & Lightning's A Pirate's Life is a full-length musical that tests the limits of blending theater and live concert experience with its engaging story, rockin' pirate songs, and the magic of performance and puppetry. It tells the story of Johnny — a promising singer/songwriter who, after tragedy struck, followed a path to the bottom. He was a lost cause until a mysterious character sees his performance and promises to salvage his talent, though with a personal agenda in mind. The lines between reality and fantasy are blurred as Johnny descends into a pirate fantasy that puts him and his new found friends in peril. Johnny's journey to find his way back to reality pits him in the middle of an epic battle between good and evil on the high seas to control a mysterious object that has the power to shape space and time itself.

PG-13
