AARRRRGH! Who doesn’t want to be a pirate?!! When young Jeremy Jacobs and his exceptional digging skills are recruited by Captain Braid Beard, Jeremy thinks the pirate life is for him. But these aren’t your average pirates! There’s the meanest pirate on the seven seas — actually a sensitive guy who likes ballet and is a member of Mensa — and the pirate who thinks the stuffed plush parrot on his shoulder is actually real. And the pirate who serves French cuisine. And the pirate who has a cleanliness obsession. And the pirate who barks like a dog. And yes, even the pirate who is an intellectual and is constantly referring to his iPad. A musical adventure of finding one’s own heart, Jeremy’s journey helps him realize that the simple things in life just may be the things that are most important.
