Additional Information

Members of the State Fair Community College Theatre and Music Arts programs will present the children’s musical “How I Became a Pirate” Nov. 18-22 for area elementary students and at 2 p.m. Nov. 23 for the public in the Stauffacher Theatre on the Sedalia campus.

Jeremy Jacobs’ talent for building sand castles earns him an invitation to join the crew of Braid Beard’s ship. Living the high life at sea, Jeremy trades manners for mayhem as he rolls in stolen treasure, sings sea chanteys and practices pirate talk with his new friends. It’s a grand adventure until Jeremy gets homesick for bedtime stories, goodnight kisses and soccer practice. Can he convince the pirates to take him home?

The show is suitable for young audiences. All tickets are $5 and may be purchased online at or email or call the Box Office at (660) 596-7387 from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Wheelchair seating is available upon request.  More than 4,160 students and teachers from 25 schools are scheduled to attend.
