The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage presents The Story Pirates Present: This Show is Missing! On Saturday, March 30 at 11 a.m. Grab your magnifying glasses and funny-looking, double-sided hats because a mystery is afoot at Story Pirates headquarters. They are celebrating the release of their latest book with a show … but their script has vanished! The Story Pirates need help from kids in the audience to get to the bottom of it.
The Story Pirates believe that every child has a story to tell. This critically acclaimed media organization, founded in 2004, has headquarters in New York and Los Angeles, and produces an array of original projects based on collaborations between kids and world-class artists. The group is made up of renowned comedians, musicians, authors, designers and teachers who use kids’ own words, and ideas as the source material for everything they do. Adding professional polish, the Pirates bring to life on stage, on screen, in books, and through their popular podcast, what young minds scribble down on paper. By inviting kids into the creative process, the Story Pirates offer a participatory new approach to kids’ media that’s fresh and engaging, not to mention hilarious.
Story Pirates is also proud to be a leading advocate for arts education. Through Story Pirates Changemakers, their partner non-profit, the Pirates provide life-changing literacy and creative writing programs to thousands of kids around the country, including those in Title I schools and homeless shelters. Kids everywhere are invited to submit their own story ideas. Learn more at storypirates.com and via Twitter @storypirates, Instagram @storypirates, and Facebook.com/storypirates.
All Family Programs feature pre-show activities. Arrive an hour early to enjoy art projects. The show will also feature a post-show book-signing with the cast.
Family Programming at The Broad Stage made possible in part by the generous support of the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commissions, and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
