Ahoy mateys — don’t miss the inaugural production of a new fall program of cabaret-style theatrical events for families on Oct. 5 with the production of How I Became a Pirate.

The Greenwich Arts Council and the Downtown Cabaret Children’s Theatre in Bridgeport will present the program, to be held in a specially adapted area for the council’s performance space in the meeting room on the second floor at 299 Greenwich Avenue.

How I Became a Pirate tells the story of Jeremy Jacob who is digging in the sand at North Beach when he is enthusiastically greeted by Captain Braid Beard and his gang of jolly pirates. Jeremy soon finds himself recruited to help find the perfect spot to bury the pirates’ treasure. This sea-faring musical features such songs as A Good One To Boot, Green Teeth, I’m Really Just a Sensitive Guy, You’ve Got to Talk Like a Pirate and more.

The show will have kids rolling in the aisles and secretly hoping that Captain Braid Beard and his gang of pirates would whisk them off to sea, according to organizers.

All seats for the show are $25 and advance tickets may be purchased by phone at 203-576-1636, by website at [email protected] or by mailing How I Became a Pirate, c/o Downtown Cabaret Children’sTheatre, 263 Golden Hill Street, Bridgeport, CT. 06604.

Tickets will also be available at the door the day of performance.

Following the performance of How I Became a Pirate, the cast members, in costume, will be available for a “meet & greet” and photos with members of the audience.
