This year’s Pirates of the Hudson features a rollicking show fresh from Off-Broadway. It’s a full day of interacting with buccaneers both on stage and off. The Greatest Pirate Story Never Told, a swashbuckling pirate musical in which the audience helps write and perform the tale, takes the stage at Tarrytown Music Hall, 13 Main St.
Flung into the future by a bumbling sea witch, a crew of misfit pirates now has only one chance of returning home: performing the greatest pirate epic ever seen on stage! But when their script is torn asunder, these pirates-turned-actors are forced to improvise based on YOUR suggestions!
Performances, which last about an hour, are at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
Show tickets include admission to Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow, where a small crew of buccaneers drops anchor from 10-6pm. Visitors can collect free bandanas, get pirate-themed tattoos, and embark on a treasure hunt. In addition, an interactive exhibit in the historic site’s manor house explores the link between pirates and the heritage of Philipsburg Manor. “What is Pirate Treasure?” delves into the concept of treasure in the 18th century and the Philipse family’s connection to real pirates.
