CLEVER JACK AND THE PIRATES
​Poor Jack is off to seek his fortune.  If he doesn't steal the gold from a group of slightly crazy pirates, he can't marry Sari, his sweetheart and Mr. Farmer's daughter.  Mr. Farmer, meanwhile is under the spell of Willard, a pig.  Yes, a real pig.  Willard's convinced him to kick the horse, dog, cat and chicken off the property in his secret plan to take over the farm.  Jack soon joins forces with the animals on his quest, Sari secretly follows them to help, and Willard is always near, trying to thwart Jack's efforts to get the gold. When Jack, Sari and Willard meet up with the somewhat dim pirates, chaos and fun ensue.  In the end, Jack wins Sari, Willard is banished, the pirates keep their gold, the animals return to the farm, and Mr. Farmer even joins the pirate crew.  You'll love the knee-slapping folk music, the sweet ballads, and the comedy of this charming re-telling of the Bremen Town Musicians tale.  Clever Jack and the Pirates is sure to please audiences of all ages.
