“How I Became a Pirate” Live on Stage at Upper Darby Performing Arts Center




Join a Comical Band of Pirates in their Search for Treasure at UD Summer Stage! July 26, 27, 28 


Ahoy mateys! Pirates are coming to the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center! When a band of comical pirates lands at North Beach looking for an expert digger, young Jeremy Jacob climbs aboard. Based on the children’s book written by Melinda Long, “How I Became a Pirate” is a swashbuckling musical adventure for the whole family. Performances are July 26, 27 and 28 at 10:30 am and on July 27 at 7:30 pm at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center. 

Upper Darby Summer Stage will be invaded by pirates and transform into the sunny North Beach. Jeremy Jacob (Aiden Mastronardo of Havertown) is an adventurous young boy who is greeted by Captain Braid Beard (Dylan Rooney of Springfield) on an ordinary day at the beach. Accompanying Braid Beard are his trusty mates Sharktooth the Pirate (Rain Diaz of Clifton Heights) and Max the Pirate (Molly McCarthy of Media) as well as many others. Jeremy enjoys adventuring with them but learns that love and home are treasures you can’t find on any map! Catchy pirate tunes and intricate dance moves will excite all audiences!

Tickets are affordably priced at $8-$12 and members of The Upper Darby Performing Arts Center save $1. Tickets may be purchased at udpac.org or by calling the box office at 610.622.1189. The Upper Darby Performing Arts Center is located at 601 N. Lansdowne Avenue, minutes from the Main Line and Center City.  

The performance is approximately 60 minutes with no intermission. Parking is free. The show is recommended for ages four and up with free babysitting in the lobby offered for those who may be too young to sit quietly through the entire show. 

“How I Became a Pirate” director Rob Henry speaks about this hilarious show with a great heart. Henry states, “This sweet and silly show is sure to entertain both parents and children alike.” 

A Summer Stage show is a unique experience for all ages. Prior to the children’s performances, young audience members can enjoy pre-show activities and a meet-and-greet with characters after each show. Autographs and pictures are encouraged!
