A swashbuckling good time was had by those who attended Hartman Elementary School’s third grade musical “Pirates 2.” The cast gave two performances May 14, one for the school and an evening show for families.

“Pirates 2” is the sequel to John Jacobson and Roger Emerson’s “Pirates,” which the third grade class performed last year.

The talented group of third graders, sang, danced, and read from Shakespeare, all before a captivated audience. Parents helped make costumes, and Erin Parker, Hartman music teacher, directed, choreographed and provided the set.

This year’s show continued the tale of the stowaway who has now become the Pirate Captain. The show featured an assortment of new “Beards” including; Twistedbeard, Dancingbeard, William Shakesbeard, 5:00shadowbeard and more.

In last year’s production, the pirates discovered that there is more to life than plundering and pillaging for treasure. They discovered a stowaway on board who was not at all what she seemed. In the end, the Beards accepted her into the pirate brood as a talented leader when she rescued them from a winless fate after the king came down with laryngitis just before the annual pirate-singing contest.

“These musicals are written and recommended for grades 4-8,” Parker said. “Most performances are middle school aged, so these kids are far ahead of the curve in being able to pull these off.”

The saga of three pirate plays will be performed by the same group as they proceed through elementary school. They began with “Pirates” in second grade and will conclude with “A Pirate Christmas” next year.
