The Story Pirates

Story Pirates

Sketch Comedians Offer Education and Fun

There is a pirate posse coming to town. Unlike Jack Sparrow and his misfit renegades, however, this band of rogues uses the power of the pen to disarm rather than drunken swordplay. They’re called the Story Pirates, and they kick off UCSB’s Arts & Lectures Family Fun series. The group offers a blend of education and theater as improvisational actors, comedians, and musicians create funny-bone-tickling skits and musicals from stories written by kids from around the nation. Performances have been touted as a “Monty Python meets Schoolhouse Rock!” experience. For an hour prior to the main event, there will be food, face painting, and balloons to get the little ones in a festive, fun mood. Story Pirates will be in town Sunday, October 20, 3 p.m., at UCSB’s Campbell Hall. Tickets: $15 (general), $10 kids. For more information, call 893-3535 or visit
