About

The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate
by MARGARET MAHY
adapted for the stage by TIM BRAY
songs by CHRISTINE WHITE

Ahoy me’ hearties! Margaret Mahy’s rollicking and funny pirate adventure, makes for a brilliant family outing.

The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate tells the story of Sam, an ordinary man who wears an ordinary suit and who works in an ordinary office. But his mother is an extraordinary mother – she’s a pirate and yearns to see the sea again.

Costume Parade (Gala and School Holiday Season only)
Encourage your children to dress up as their favourite character for the onstage Costume parade just prior to the start of the show.

Is your child a budding actor, director, stage manager, or theatre technician?

Children are invited into the daily life of the Tim Bray Productions’ theatre company. Our tutors, cast and crew guide them in a hands-on adventure inside the theatre itself, including a ticket to the 10.30am performance of the current show. Have fun learning basic stagecraft through theatre games, quizzing actors and stage crew about the performance they have just seen, learning about the role of lighting and sound, and touring backstage with the stage manager who reveals the unseen work that makes a show successful.

Dates for 2019 to be confirmed
