Pirates of the "I Don't Care"-ibbean
A Kids' Musical about Storing Up Treasures in Heaven
|Voicing: Children's Choir; Unison with optional 2 and 3 part|
|Jeff Smith's new children's musical, Pirates of the "I Don't Care"-ibbean, is sure to be a big hit! The musical will reach not only kids, but your congregation with a great message of the Gospel.|
The story is set inside Pirate Park, home of the Plattsburg Pirates. It is a pirate night at the stadium and families are in the bleachers dressed as pirates to support their woefully bad team.
Similar to Dorothy traveling back to the Land of Oz, the story starts with a dream sequence where a young fan named Andy gets hit in the head with a baseball and travels to a fantastical island in the Caribbean called Johnny Bay. As the story unfolds, you learn that the pirates don't remember anything about their past or how they came to Johnny Bay. All they know is that they are required to guard the captain's treasure from anyone who may want to steal it away.
Creator Jeff Smith wants kids to learn that, "You are not created to be on a deserted island, guarding someone else's treasure. Your real treasure is in heaven, not on earth. Avarice is a tool of the enemy to keep you from becoming all God created you to be on earth. In the story, Andy exposes the lies of the evil captain and helps the pirates assume their rightful place on the sea."
This musical will connect with kids as well as adults and draw them in to something that is both fun and spiritually educational.
