Swashbuckling Young Seafarers are invited to meet Pirate Gran at The Met

Scamp Theatre returns to The Met on Saturday 10 May at 1pm with swashbuckling children’s show Pirate Gran.


Meet Gran. She bakes, she knits, you’d never even guess she was a pirate. It isn’t the life for everyone but Gran says if you don’t mind sleeping in a hammock and being called Scary Mary then Pirating is a career more girls should think about. With a pet crocodile under her bed, a wicked sense of humour and a whole raft of adventures under her belt, time with Gran is never dull.


An absolute treat for seafaring children aged 3+ and their shipmates, Pirate Gran is based on Geraldine Durrant’s popular series of children’s books. The show is presented by the award-winning Scamp Theatre, whose work has been described as ‘wonderfully exuberant and imaginative’ by TimeOut. Scamp’s recent productions include Stick Man, Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Private Peaceful.


The cast features Pauline Goldsmith as Gran, with her crew bought to life with puppetry designed by Toby Olié, associate puppetry director of the National Theatre’s production of War Horse.


Tickets to see Pirate Gran are £10. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz
