THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS
May 25 - 28, 5:30 and 7:45
Luxuriously coiffed, quite enthusiastic but less successful, and terribly underappreciated, Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant) has competed but never won the coveted Pirate of the Year award. This year (1837) will be different! With his ragtag crew and his beloved, big-boned parrot, he travels the seas seeking booty; adventures are forthcoming but from unexpected directions. Gideon Defoe has adapted his own book, whose storyís witty, oddball sensibility is a perfect match for the stop-motion antics of Aardman director Pete Lord (Chicken Run, Wallace and Gromit). Itís a visual treat and smashingly silly.
