PIRATES OF LONG POINT

A Thieving Melodrama

By Adam Corrigan Holowitz

August 8, 9, 10 and 11, 2019

There are Pirates on Long Point! A band of local youth are luring unsuspecting ships onto the shore of Long Point, by copying with lanterns the signal of the lighthouse. Once run ashore, the gang loots the ship for rum and they are gone before the authorities arrive! But with the arrival of a bumbling American Navy admiral, things are about to get sticky. Will a whip-smart local girl save the day or will the tip of Long Point be annexed by the USA? Find out in this hilarious summer melodrama from the creators that brought you last year’s hit show The Angel of Long Point! 

Nightly performances at 7:30 pm on Thursday, August 8, Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10th.

Matinee performance at 2:00 pm on Saturday, August 10 and Sunday, August 11th.

All performances located in the historic Forbes Barn.

Tickets $15.00 per person + HST.
