Ahoy mateys! Pirates are coming to the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center! Gather your pirate crew and get ready to sail away with Captain Braid Beard and his mates to help them find the perfect hiding spot for their treasure as Upper Darby Summer Stage presents “How I Became a Pirate” Wednesday July 26th – Friday July 28th.

When a band of comical pirates lands at North Beach looking for an expert digger, young Jeremy Jacob climbs aboard. Based on the children’s book written by Melinda Long, “How I Became a Pirate” is a swashbuckling musical adventure for the whole family. Performances are July 26, 27 and 28 at 10:30 am and on July 27 at 7:30 pm at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center. Even your youngest pirate fans are in for a real treat with this perfectly family-friendly performance!

Upper Darby Summer Stage will be invaded by pirates and transform into the sunny North Beach. Jeremy Jacob (Aiden Mastronardo of Havertown) is an adventurous young boy who is greeted by Captain Braid Beard (Dylan Rooney of Springfield) on an ordinary day at the beach. Accompanying Braid Beard are his trusty mates Sharktooth the Pirate (Rain Diaz of Clifton Heights) and Max the Pirate (Molly McCarthy of Media) as well as many others. Jeremy enjoys adventuring with them but learns that love and home are treasures you can’t find on any map! Catchy pirate tunes and intricate dance moves will excite all audiences!
