The Tale of Piggy Pirate and the Star of the Sea

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

The Story

One day a mysterious bottle bumps against the side of Piggy Pirate's ship. Thinking it is a rare vintage rum, he fishes it out and finds a map leading to a fabulous treasure. 

On his journey he meets Matilda Merpig, who helps him navigate the high seas to the place where X marks the spot. But Piggy and Matilda find something far more unexpected than treasure...

A swashbuckling adventure with sea creatures, shanties and beautiful handmade puppets.

Craft Activity

Make your own sea dragon puppet to guard your treasure!

Each party guest makes their own paper dragon puppet to play with and take home.

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.
