Pick Ye Own Pirate Theatrical Adventure

Join and be the navigator in the “Shiver We Timbers: A Peripatetic Pick-Yer-Own Pirate Adventure.” The fifth annual summer touring production will be a pirate-themed,participatory play.

Sail with the peripatetic players in search of treasure, but avoid cursed gold.

What should I expect?

Why, expect the unexpected, of course. Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, mice and meese, Capulets and Montagues, droids and aliens, boys and girls. The Peripatetic Players arrive with FluxWagon, their folding mobile stage, to present a spectacular show in the open air. Their ensemble productions feature fantastical feats of theatricality, imaginative leaps (only after looking), marvelous moralities, and ever-so-catchy sing-songs.

High seas hijinks await on their mobile stage at a park near you. Shows last a little more than one hour and are suitable for all ages. Bring a blanket, sun protection (or a parka if you’re visiting them in San Francisco), snacks or whatever you’ll need to feel comfortable. Read FAQ.
