            Pirates from Grammar Island

            I am sure you have heard many of our wonderful songs already, but for the real thing we will be performing on May 22nd at 2:00 sharp! Everyone is very excited to show their hard work!  

            There are multiple youtube videos of others performing the same play if your child wants to practice songs at home! As for costumes everyone needs to dress like a pirate. I was thinking a simple one would be a white button down shirt or striped t-shirt, black pants, and some pirate gear. To make it fancier you could get a vest, maybe a sash around the waist, a hat. I have collected some supplies over the years, and I would be happy to let students borrow my sashes, bandanas, and eye patches. Some students have other parts and costumes and I have talked to them about it already.  We will need costumes checked off before the 14th of May. Let me know if you have any questions!
