Inspired by the book by Peter Harris and Deborah Allwright.

A fantastical moonlit adventure with puppets and pirates.

When dark shadows come stealing down Tom’s bedroom walls he thinks it might be monsters or ogres or trolls.

But Tom’s not afraid, for he’s a brave little boy. So he peeps out of the window and what should he see but PIRATES. Stranger still they’re GIRL PIRATES, stealing the front of his house!

Tom joins the Girl Pirates on their daring adventure across the high seas to an island where Captain Patch and his really rough, tough grown-up pirates are guarding their treasure. Can Tom and his new friends outwit the snoozing, snoring pirates and steal their booty?  

Puppets, song and ballet dancing pirates combine in this delightful adaptation of the much loved picture book.

Suitable for over 3 year olds and their families.
