Story Pirates Flagship at the Actors' Gang

Watch out Culver City! It's our first public show featuring new authors in Los Angeles in 2014, and our first time at the amazing Actors' Gang in Culver City!
Everything the Story Pirates perform is based on a story written by an elementary schooler - from the shame of chronic bedwetting to the tender love between the devil and some guy she met at Starbucks. The Flagship Show features brand new stories written by kids at the show, and a section that's improvised based on suggestions from the kids in the audience!
Kids write stories. Adults act them out. Kids write more. And, those adults are professional improvisers and musicians from UCB, Second City, the Groundlings, Improv Olympic, and more.
With music, puppets, and a hilarious glimpse of the world through the minds of kids, this is the only show in town where you might see a David Bowie-style tribute to a good Hebrew School education.
Based in New York and Los Angeles, the Story Pirates have blown the minds of 500,000 second graders. You're next.
This show is for all ages, and the runtime is about 50 minutes.
