The Fearsome Pirate Frank
Come watch “The Fearsome Pirate Frank” by Pat Lyderson performed by Beach Middle School Drama.
Who knew the pirate craze dated back to Shakespearean time?! Apparently, the star of a popular pirate play — The Fearsome Pirate Frank — is the teenage heartthrob of every girl in Shakespearean England, even though he can’t remember his lines for the life of him! However, when the actor playing Frank and his supporting cast, including prima donna Esmerelda, get kidnapped by real pirates during one of their productions, it’s good-bye stardom, hello servitude on a real pirate ship! Two witty narrators and a stream of hilarious sign-carriers keep the musical moving as we see the pirate actors taking orders from the real pirate Frank… who is a woman! But pirate actors are not the only ones hijacked in this hysterical musical comedy… so is the plot from a particularly popular pirate flick! The chilling flashback sequence of how Cap’n Frank get the dreadful “Blackmark” will shiver your timbers, and Esmerelda’s lament about losing her makeup case will blow you down!
