The action-packed Brookings-Harbor Community Theater presentation of “Lady Pirates of the Caribbean” continues with four shows remaining. 

Final shows are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, July 28, 29 and 30, and 2 p.m.Sunday, July 31, at the Harbor Performing Arts Center in the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center. 

As the story unfolds, a chest of doubloons sent by the queen to care for orphaned children has been stolen. To save the orphans from starvation, Sister Benedict seeks the help of Esmeralda, the captain of the pirates known as the Lawless Ladies. 

Once an orphan herself, Esmeralda, played by Crissy Cooper,  promises to recover the gold. 

The Lawless Ladies go to Parrot Isle disguised as a shipwrecked theatrical troupe. Esmeralda suspects that Gov. Don Juan Futon, played by David Shull, and his niece Lucretia, played by Katie Graves, are impostors, but she has no proof. 

Wary Lucretia proclaims that the theatrical troupe are spies. Esmeralda and her Lawless Ladies are condemned to walk the plank, but Esmeralda tricks Lucretia and the fake governor and exposes their evil doing. A classic sword fight is the climax to this pirate play. 

“Lady Pirates of the Caribbean” promises lively songs, led by Music Director Katie Graves, intricate dances choreographed by Crissy Cooper, and costumes by Glenna Craig and Norma Starbard. Nine zesty songs add energy and fun to the story.

Ticket prices are $7 for youth, $9 for seniors and $10 for adults. Tickets are available at Wright’s Framing and Art Supplies and Pacific Rim Copy Center in Brookings, and New Wave Video in Harbor. Call for reservations and more information at 541-469-4700 or 541-661-2473.
