The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County will host its “Free Family Fest with Story Pirates”, a nationally recognized comedy troupe and nonprofit arts education organization that transforms original short stories written by children into a wild, sketch comedy musical.
South Florida elementary school children are encouraged to submit their own short stories for a chance to see them performed live by the group’s cast on the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall stage on Saturday, January 16 at 1:30 p.m.
Call for submissions have already started and will last until December 1. Stories submitted must be original content and cannot include characters or plots from movies, television shows or books. Select stories will be incorporated into a fully produced comedy sketch and musical number.
Audience members will also have the opportunity to participate in the show during an entirely improvised segment.
