Sail the high seas with Captain Samuel Peaches and his crew! You’ll help these eccentric performing pirates chart their course though fantastic adventures inspired by pirate myths, legends and stories. Meet creatures and characters of the sea, sail to raucous pirate towns, sing along with swashbuckling sea chanteys, search for buried treasure, and avoid cursed doubloons — but be careful! Danger lurks in every port, and at the crest of every wave. And since the audience will choose the course, no two shows will be the same!
