Our Pirates’ Tale Transformed into “Most Fantastical!”

Most Fantastical Pirate Tale full graphicThe 6th public production for FFP ~ the 4th to be staged at our new home, the Pilot Point Community Opera House ~ turned out to be the biggest, best, most spectacular show we have ever done. Our Christmas 2014 performance of A Shakespearean Tale! was a huge success and very well received, with some of our best acting to date ~ and some exceptional singing. But this latest “Tale” has generated the biggest “buzz” ever. Four large audiences (over 425 counted) heartily agreed with four spontaneous standing ovations!

Fri PT The Sing OffWe had a large, new influx of cast members, including an exceptional singer and actress who led our “pirate crew” to unforeseen heights. We went all out on the multi-level set, which became a star unto itself, including Bob the Octopus and three sails swinging from the rafters. We added several new Broadway-style musical numbers for a total of 9 original songs (plus one transformed traditional pirate ditty). Characters and story were greatly fleshed out and reworked, and some new characters added ~ including our favorite butler Jeeves who sailed in from last summer’s The Girl I Left Behind Me. He was a hit, to be sure. “A lint roller?! Westerly, are you responsible for this?!”

So we now have A Most Fantastical Pirate Tale!, with its own soaring song, in classic Broadway style, “a most fantastical, most magnificent, most peculiar, pirate tale!!” delivered each time with inspiring energy and enthusiasm.

Much more to come, on this and other subjects. The action has been centered on our Facebook page this past year, as the casts and audience members tend to hang around that neighborhood. But we’re determined to revitalize the blog and integrate it more with the Facebook. Please join us!
