The Grade 5/6 SMS Spring Musical

Pirates! The Musical!

From Hal Leonard

by John Jacobson and Roger Emerson

"We're off to sail the rollicking sea, pirates all are we!" But... ARRRR, and shiver me timbers! There's a stowaway on board! Perhaps the King of the High "C's" will know what to do. Join this salty crew of colorful scallywags when Bluebeard, Yellowbeard, Whitebeard, Purplebeard (well, you get the picture), along with the No Beards, hoist the Jolly Roger and set sail for a mighty adventure.

Showing at the SMS Gym - Thursday, May 23rd
