Treasure Island Sword-Fighting Swahbucklers!

AAAARRRR, ye scurvy sea dogs, 'tis I, Eyepatch Carl, the scourge of the seven seas, and I'm here to tell ye about a very fun program for boys in a couple of weeks. It's the Treasure Island Sword-Fighting Swashbucklers. What is it, ye ask? It's for boys (boys only!)10-12 years old. In honor of the Children's Theatre of Charlotte's upcoming production of Treasure Island, we're going to learn the basics of stage sword combat from Andrea King, one of the Children's Theatre crew, and then improvise a pirate sword-fighting scene of our own. AARRR, that sounds like fun!! The program will be on Saturday, March 6 at 3:30 pm in the Round here at Imaginon. Registration starts at 9:00 am on Saturday, the 19th. Call 704-416-4630 to register. We're limiting it to only 20 boys, so don't delay!

Ye want more reason to come? All participants get a $5.00 discount on general admission tickets to the Treasure Isalnd play (March 12-28) AARRR, there's some plunder for ye!

And if ye get the chance, be sure to read the original Treasure Island. It's the greatest pirate story of all time! We've even got a graphic novel version. If that's not enough, click on the labels under this post and find out what pirate books we've talked about. AARRR, ye're sure to find something ye'd like. The library has more good books about pirates than a Spanish galleon has gold doubloons!!!
