Jingle ARRGH the Way!
December 8-17, 2017
The “How I Became a Pirate” crew is back! A mysterious message left in the crow’s nest of their ship brings Captain Braid Beard and his pirate mates back to North Beach to seek out young Jeremy Jacob to help solve a riddle and find the Christmas treasure. Favorite characters, a rollicking story, great songs, and a trip to the North Pole to find “you know who” – makes “Jingle ARRGH the Way!” a wonderful holiday show for the whole family. Based on a story by Melinda Long, author of “How I Became a Pirate.”
Whether a fan of the original “How I Became a Pirate” musical, or taking a trip across the seas with the pirate crew for the first time, you’re guaranteed to have a swashbucklingly good time!
Scrooge: A Miserable S.O.B.
A Holiday Benefit Staged Reading
One Night Only!
Sunday, December 17, 2017 – 7:30 PM
This performance is rated PG-13, and is not recommended for anyone under the age of 13. Leave the kiddies at home!
NOLA Project Artistic Director and writer A.J. Allegra skewers a beloved story as he puts an irreverent spin on Charles Dickens’ classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL. In this comedic retelling, Ebenezer Scrooge – miser, bigot, misogynist, and overall terrible human being – learns the true meaning of Christian charity and, most importantly, what a tremendous jerk everyone really thinks he is!
This benefit performance is our gift to our parents, volunteers, and supporters who attend our children’s shows all year long, and features cast members of Jingle ARRGH the Way!. This show is NOT for your kids, so grab a sitter, and head out to BREC’s Baton Rouge Gallery for a fun night that is both naughty AND nice.
Ticket price includes open bar before and during the performance.
