The first production “Arrr!” – very loosely based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island – debuted in January 2013 and was an instant success, playing to sell-out audiences over two weekends and establishing a tradition of British Pantomime at the Burgdorff Arts Center in Maplewood, NJ.
Arrr! is a family show in the long-standing and riotous tradition of British “Panto”.
Our hero, Jim Ladd, has to rescue Mary-Ann, the love of his life, from the clutches of Captain Beardy and his villainous pirates, and win her hand and the approval of her father the grumpy mayor.
There’s ghosts, treasure, bananas, a dancing cow, and Sirocco the goddess of the winds.
It’s more than a performance – the audience shout, sing, hoot and holler.
Adults love it just as much as the kids.
You WILL cheer! You WILL holler! You WILL shout “ARRR!”!
