Pirate Fest 2011 Orientation and TAPA!
Saturday July 9, 2011 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Location: Fest Site - Rotary Park, Wentzville MO
Its time to rethink ourselves as we pack away Pete Lyon and Open up Tortuga. In order to do this we have, you guessed it,TAPA! (Tortuga Academy of Performing Arts). TAPA is where you will learn all you need to know in order to get your character together. Costuming questions can be answered, History will be given, Survival for our island will be taught!
If you couldn’t attend the Open House and would like to join us as costumed or support cast, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the Orientation and we’ll be happy to shanghai ya, er, sign you up!
Tortuga Here We Come!
Too much law and order on Martinique has forced the cast of the St. Louis Pirate Fest to sail to Tortuga where pirates are pirates and military is scarce. True to the island’s history, the Fest ground has been divided into “quarters” controlled by pirates and islanders of different nationalities. This allows for peaceful coexistence between the inhabitants of each nation. And if you believe that you’ve been drinking too much rum! Sparks will fly, steel will clash and black power will go boom which is sure to result in a good time for all.
So whether you’re French, Spanish, English, Dutch or just a plain old American pirate, plan to join us this September for three weekends of singing, shopping, eating, drinking and good ol’ carousing at the 2011 St. Louis Pirate Fest!
Pirate Fest 2011 Open House!
Nearly 100 attended the Open House held at the Knight’s Pub on the St. Louis Pirate Fest site in Rotary Park on Saturday, June 25. Excited new and veteran volunteers learned that starting this year the backdrop for the event will be Tortuga which allows for more diversity and an opportunity to interact with pirates from around the world who all called the island home.
