While the designers and tech side of the show work with actors to enhance the story with spectacle, Captain Hook decides to cause trouble:
Pirating isn’t all about high sea adventuring and treasure hunting. Pirates have to work hard to walk the walk and talk the talk! Check out one pirate’s dedication to his role:
Mermaids came out tonight to dance, play, sing, and entrap men and lure men them to the bottom of the sea while Pirates and Lost Boys sharpened up their sword fighting skills.
Later, the Pirates tried to tempt Tiger Lily with a cake baked by Captain Hook. Tiger Lily was taken and tied up to Marooner’s Rock while the tide began to rise.
Last night (Tuesday) was the first time where actors and most of the band worked together on songs. For warm ups, actors blended fun and focus together through vocal exercises and ended in creating an amazing calypso (a musical style influenced by jazz that uses improvised vocals and sounds). Clapping, snapping, stomping, and vocals were a few of the “instruments” culminated in the piece. Not often will pirates, lost boys, and other residents get along so well!
