A couple of years ago I wrote and directed this play for two groups in Brighton and Hove. I thought this would be a fun and engaging show to perform with the Starters in Hurst

I was thrilled to start directing at Hurst Young Actors groups this term and thought this would be a great play for all the starters to do as it contains acting song and even dance, plus it’s always fun to play Pirates!

Last time I directed this show it was spread over two groups and they all performed half each. I realized that this group would have to work extra hard to do the whole play and to get through the whole lot in one hour workshops! I cannot believe the focus and commitment this group has shown in rehearsals, I was ready to cut some of the show if needed but haven’t cut any as they have all worked super hard and remembered all moves and direction!

I hope that you enjoy our ‘one-off’ performance. They are a brilliant group showing concentration and commitment to rehearsal beyond their years, I’m truly proud of each of them all and am sure you will be too!

Enjoy the show!
