How I Became a Pirate! The Dallas Children's Theater.

The Dallas Children's Theater brings in amazing cast and productions and we have been here several times and like always our time here is great. We come here as a family to experience something new and the kids can appreciate talent from all over the country that come to the DCT. Not only is our family time valuable when we visit the DCT, but that staff here make it a priority to make everyone feel welcome and that makes the time here fantastic.

If you are worried that your kids may be too young, they probably aren't! I have a three year-old and I have not felt like kids couldn't be kids at the DCT.  My toddler may shout out her enthusiasm, but mostly, the theater is filled with sounds of kids experiencing something great. 

I will share with you the fun my family had at The Dallas Children's Theater National Touring Production " How I Became a Pirate"

Ahoy Matey,

This is pirate talk and my kids were super excited to learn the ways of the pirates and, of course, watch Jeremy the young boy, who learns how to become a pirate. This was a wonderful production of five pirates and a young boy Jeremy taking the audience on an adventure on the high seas, but we never ever left our seats.

The pirates exchanging conversations with Jeremy, the young boy, was very entertaining especially when conversations would turn into a song. The silly costumes and, of course, the scenery tricks made my kids laugh throughout the scenes and kept them on the edge of their seats waiting for what was going to happen next.  With all the belly laughs, it did not seem possible for my kids to think that misbehaving pirates and Jeremy were in danger on the seas, but just having an adventure.

My kids were able to relate to Jeremy in so many ways, like his love for soccer, making new friends, and always wanting to be tucked in for bedtime. If my kids can relate to the characters in the play, so will yours. It is family- friendly and I recommend you come here with your kids. The six person cast was superb.

The DCT is becoming one of my family's favorite place to enjoy great theater shows from brilliant casts and productions that go above and beyond to bring joy to my kids' day.
