How I Became A Pirate
Book, music and lyrics by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman. Based upon the book "How I Became a Pirate," written by Melinda Long and illustrations by David Shannon, performed by arrangement with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and The Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. Sail off on a fantastic musical excursion when a band of comical pirates lands at Daytona Beach looking for an expert digger to join their crew. Braid Beard and his mates enlist young Jeremy Jacob, as they try to find the perfect spot to bury their treasure. Jeremy finds that adventuring can be lots of fun, but also learns that love and home are treasures you can't find on any map!
