Capt’n Jack’s (over 50) incredible cohorts in this truly unique performance are as varied as the stories of lost treasure and high-seas pirate adventure that we all heard as a child. From Blackbeard, The Pirate and Snoz Perboxious to Seamus McNasty-McNasty and Bobbie, The Sultry Songstress they are all beautifully hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind puppets. Although not a ventriloquist, but a puppeteer, Capt’n Jack skillfully combines his love of music with his puppet artistry to create an unforgettable and magical event.
Pirate History & Lore Show
Capt’n Jack also performs with his colorful, shoulder-perched buddies, creating a symphony of techni-color sights and sounds.
