Captain Jean the Pirate Queen - Maryland Unusual Characters

Captain Jean the Pirate Queen

Pee Wee Pirate Show - Pirate Queen Captain Jean

"Avast ye slug-a-beds!" Wake up and join your captain, yes WOMAN Captain Jean as she teaches about sailing on a ship. Pirates? Not only pirates are discussed in this fast-moving and exciting show, but ye will learn about all types of sailing information - ships, 16th century history, even how to climb the rigging. However, Captain Jean isn't really a pirate: she's the daughter of famous explorer John Cabot -- so instead of capturing her audience, she chooses to teach them instead!

Mary Ann as Captain Jean brings two audience volunteers This adventure encourages the audience to learn words from across the world, small bits of information from many cultures -- details that only a 'pirate queen' (woman sailing adventurer and explorer) can bring to little 'sailors'.

An interactive show for all ages - kids are swept out of their seats as they are asked to pantamime hoisting the rigging, swabbing the decks, throwing out fishing nets, and even looking for land. A chance to clap, move, shout and have fun - like all sailors and pirates want to do!

Perfect for all types of events: stage presentations, waterfront festivals, sailing festivals, and of course pirate festivals and parties!
