Troy NY is just a short drive to the north of Columbia County, and what better reason to visit then a musical about Blackbeard. A new, family-friendly musical based on the children’s book series Backbeard and the Birthday Suit and Backbeard: Pirate for Hire by Sage faculty member, Matthew McElligott.
This rollicking musical tells the tale of Backbeard, the hairiest pirate who ever lived, and his quest to answer the question, “How should a pirate look?” When a rowdy birthday party ruins his clothes, a pair of persuasive tailors convince him to try a vibrant new outfit of patterned trousers, a colorful coat, and a pig. Can the fearsome pirate win the acceptance of the Pirate Council, the townspeople, and even his own crew? Found out in this high-spirited story of courage, acceptance, and standing up for who you are.
Book and lyrics by Matthew McElligot, music and lyrics by Michael Musial.
