Pirates and Tigers and Ghosts, oh my!

Short Plays for Young Audiences

A number of vibrant characters are ready to take the stage in Pirates and Tigers and Ghosts, oh my! The fifty-minute performance features a series of short plays created for young audiences. Pirates and Tigers and Ghosts, oh my! promises something for everyone, including animal antics, cookie comedy, monster mayhem, and pirate pandemonium.  

As the final project for the University of Lethbridge Drama 2510 – Theatre for Young Audiences class, Pirates and Tigers and Ghosts, oh my! has already played to a number of enthusiastic elementary school audiences. The public performance at the University of Lethbridge provides an opportunity for community members to share in the fun. “Students worked collaboratively to develop the plays; it takes an incredible amount of imagination and dedication to create a piece of theatre that will captivate young audiences,” comments Nicholas Hanson, Department of Theatre & Dramatic Arts.  “In the end, the passionate response of children makes for a class experience that the university students never forget.”

Pirates and Tigers and Ghosts, oh my! – beat the cold and snow by catching an energetic show!
