Pirates in Glen Canyon! Theater group Peripatetic Players presents interactive family event at Glen Canyon Park on Sat July 14, 3pm. From website: pcard-front (1)

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!

His name is Amar Pai and he works as a software engineer. He was working from home today and this was his lunch break.

“I started out drawing hearts on the sidewalk and at some point I noticed other people drawing more, that helped me to keep it going. Kind of brightens up your commute, when you’re walking to work.”
