The Tale of Piggy Pirate and the Ghost Ship

Celebrate your Pirate, Mermaid or Halloween themed party with The Tale of Piggy Pirate and the Ghost Ship. Enjoy a charming tabletop puppet show for ages 5-10 and join in traditional crafts and fun games and activities.

The Story

Piggy Pirate is sailing the high seas looking for adventure when he discovers a mysterious shipwreck. Not put off by the spooky sounds and dismal shadows, brave Piggy Pirate is sure there must be treasure inside.

In the Ghost Ship, he meets a very special mermaid, who shares her sad secret with him. Sure enough, there's treasure to be found, but only if Piggy Pirate can break the Ghost Ship's curse...

A swashbuckling tale of the high seas with live sea shanty singing, a beautiful pirate ship set and handmade puppets.

The Storytellers

Choose from either Melody and Marigold (suitable for mermaid themes) or Captain Kittiwake and First Mate Kate (suitable for pirate themes.)

Melody and Marigold are two sisters who live in a secret seaside cove. They tend their garden of shells and coral, free fish from nets, and keep the sea clean and safe for the creatures. 

Captain Kittiwake and First Mate Kate are two swashbuckling pirates who sail the seven seas in search of adventure in their beloved ship Stardust.

In the evenings, they sing sea shanties and sit on the rocks to hear the tales the mermaids tell of wild and distant shores.
