YO HO HO, A PIRATE'S CHRISTMAS -A Holiday Musical Theater Experience for students in grades 1-6

We are so excited to announce a wonderful opportunity for your young stars who are interested in refining their acting, singing, and dancing skills. This winter, you will not want to miss this chance to work with Yvette Lawrence Bishop exploring the North Pole in "Yo Ho Ho, A Pirate's Christmas" by James Mellon and Scott De Turk. This fun-filled Christmas musical that LA Stage Scene gives "TWO THUMBS UP! A Joyous Holiday Treat for the whole family! Delightfully quirky and side-splittingly infectious. Yo Ho Ho is an inventive concoction that is both comfortably traditional and refreshingly new.”

In a move that's sure to earn them coal-filled stockings, Black-Eyed Johnny and his pirate cronies invade the North Pole and try to ruin the holidays in the family-friendly musical "Yo Ho Ho! A Pirate's Christmas." Luckily for Santa, he'll get some help from Mrs. Claus and the elves.
