Children throughout Ocean County will have a chance to walk the plank this summer, sort of. Ocean County Library will host “Pirate School,” a chance for children five years old and up to learn how to be a pirate at several library branches.
Join Billy Bones (portrayed by stage actor David Engel) as he teaches the basics of being a pirate, including how to stand, talk, laugh, eat and sing just like a swashbuckling pirate.
Children in attendance can dress like a pirate to complete the affect.
This program is filled with lots of audience interaction and participation, providing a fun experience for the whole family.
