to bury some special treasure. The play begins with Jeremy Jacob playing on a beach when suddenly, some pirates dock their ship, take him along on a trip and teach him to become a real pirate.
After a long trip learning to be a pirate, Jeremy Jacob learns how to talk like a pirate, what pirate duties are, and how to act like a real authentic pirate. He learns that pirates don’t have bedtimes, they don’t say please or thank you and they definitely don’t play his favorite sport, soccer.
The play features several musical numbers that range from learning to talk like a pirate, how to play soccer to reading a treasure map and burying the treasure. Along the trip Jeremy Jacob learns that although he loves the pirate life, he misses being home on North Beach. In the end, the pirates bring him home safely.
After Jeremy Jacob helps the pirates find exactly where the treasure should be buried, they remind Jeremy Jacob that they will never be too far away. They let him know exactly where he can find them when he needs another pirate adventure.
The show is great for the whole family and reminds the audience that there really is no place like home. Turner said, “I chose this show because it allows me to continue working on shows for kids and with kids.”
She added, “We have donated the book to all the local libraries so kids can continue to enjoy the story.”
This show was ready for the stage a year ago, before the COVID-19 pandemic surged in November 2020. The cast and Spring Valley Stagehands are excited to be back after a long break and to showcase the musical they have been working on for more than a year.
The musical will be showing on Oct. 7, 8, 9 and 10 at several times over the course of the weekend. Admission is $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. The organization encourages and recommends audience members to wear masks to ensure safety.
Spring Valley Stagehands is currently casting for future shows “Miss Nelson is Missing,” also directed by Ann Turner, and “A Candle in the Window.” More information is available at svstagehands.org.
