Pirates versus Mermaids

A Marsden Primary Production, 19 & 20 September 2018

7pm Marsden Auditorium

Heave-ho and away we go on a fantastic musical journey, where the seven seas just aren’t big enough for our pirates and mermaids! With seven fantastic songs and an adventure-packed script, join Captain Scarypants on a swashbuckling adventure with her band of brave pirates, a hungry crocodile, a crew of feisty mermaids and, of course, one crazy parrot – so hoist the sail and come aboard!


Marsden Primary students have been working hard, rehearsing and creating the stage set for their fabulous production of Pirates versus Mermaids. The show runs for 2 nights on 19 and 20 September at 7pm in the auditorium. Please read the "How to Book" information before ordering tickets.
