The next three grants of the school year are for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders to travel to the Holmes Theatre to see “How I Became a Pirate.” It is a delightful family musical about a boy who wants to become a pirate and finds that all he really needs is at home.
The musical is based off of a popular children’s book of the same name. The kids will enjoy seeing one of their favorite books come to life, and we hope that seeing the musical makes them love reading even more.
After seeing the play, students will go back to the classroom to discuss what they saw. Some classes will act out other books, while others will write about their favorite characters in the musical. It is a great experience for kids, and seeing a live action play motivates them when it comes time for our own productions!
