Avast! Youth perform at Brush Creek

February 2019 Posted in Other

Brush Creek kicks off the 2019 season with this year’s children and youth performance. The Pirate Paradise: Legend of Libertalia opens its three-weekend run on Friday, Feb, 22, with evening performances at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The show is directed by Linda Zellner, assisted by Emily Wood. It is based on a script by Emily Wood and Michael Wood.

This twist on the typical swashbuckling tale finds an orchid-hunter from Victorian England shipwrecked on an island where he finds a lost world from the great Age of Piracy – a “pirate paradise” – where democracy and equal rights for all hold sway in the midst of the usual thieving, gambling and piracy.

But all is not well in Libertalia, as he soon discovers, and the orchid-hunter’s arrival triggers events that may very well cause the end of this paradise – as well as endanger the pirate captain who captures his heart with her spirit and taste for risking everything on a throw of the dice.

Shipboard battles, sword fights, fiery battles for the city, trials where everything hangs in the balance, a love story, and even a touch of music, The Pirate Paradise offers it all. The two young casts are age 5 to 17.

Reserved seat tickets are available at two pre-sale ticket locations, Books-N-Time, 210 N. Water, Silverton, 503-874-4311, or Runaway Art & Craft Studio, 311 Commercial NE, Salem, 503-881-6270.. Tickets are $10 each ($8 for seniors 60 and older, students, and children 12 and younger. Tickets also go on sale at the door 30 minutes before each performance.
