Central Theatre performs the musical “The Pirate Queen”
March 17, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm$12 – $16
From the writers of Les Miserables and Miss Saigon comes The Pirate Queen, a musical adventure that celebrates the legendary Irish chieftain Grace O’Malley. A compelling and inspiring heroine, Grace leads an extraordinary life as a pirate, lover, and mother in 16th-century Ireland. To follow her seafaring ambitions, protect her people, and save her one true love, Grace fights against the patriarchal establishments of her time and the one woman more powerful than she — her fierce rival, Queen Elizabeth I of England.
The show combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is both a historic romance and timeless epic.
