Ahoy there me hearties, are you ready for a swashbuckling pirate adventure on the Yarra?

The Australian Shakespeare Company introduces the Caribbean Pirates to the Polly Woodside Tall Ship on Melbourne's South Wharf this January, in an exclusive hour-long interactive theatre production, performed on the shore and on the decks of the ship itself.

Actors from The Australian Shakespeare Company work wonders to captivate their audience, with ship-shape pirate sing songs, sword-fight battles, a lost treasure map and a hunt to find pieces of eight!

The Buccaneers, with help from their trusty new crew; the lads and lasses in the audience, go in search of lost gold on shore and on The Polly Woodside ship. The tale ends with an epic battle to capture Captain Cutthroat, and find the missing treasure map.

Found Treasure!
