Tim Bray Productions – Auckland’s leading theatre for children - presents: The Great Piratical Rumbustification

By: Margaret Mahy
Adapted for the stage by: Tim Bray,
Songs by: Christine White

The pirates are restless. ‘Oh, for a pirate party!’ they declare. But... a pirate party must be a stolen one. Put on your best pirate finery, grab your parrot, then come and enjoy Margaret Mahy’s piratical fun and the best rumbustification you’ve had in years.

“Perhaps Bray’s most noteworthy quality as an adapter/director of children’s stories is his uncanny ability to find the essence of the works he adapts and to find ways to translate this to the stage. His work with Mahy’s quirky creations is no exception. It’s been my pleasure to see many of Bray’s children’s theatre works but I have to say The Great Piratical Rumbustification is quite simply his best effort yet and it’s all down to harmony.” - Review, Lexie Matheson, Theatreview (July 2012 production)
