This passionate musical is based on a true story. In 1558, England and Ireland are locked in a battle for Ireland’s independence. Grace O’Malley, a strong Irish lass, fearlessly battles Queen Elizabeth’s mammoth Navy. Add splendid Celtic dancing, ships, swashbuckling swordplay, betrayal, and glorious romance! This extraordinarily beautiful, new musical was crafted by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg – composers of the blockbuster, Les Misérables.
Rated PG: Contains scenes of swordfighting and dramatic action that my be too scary for young children.
THE PIRATE QUEEN will be interpreted for the hearing impaired on Tuesday, March 28 at 7:30pm.
