THE GREAT INCAN TREASURE OF CONFUSION – PLAYS FOR HIGH SCHOOL

When the notorious pirate Captain Kill finally finds the treasure of his dreams, he attempts to seize it and take it to his ship. However as he attempts to leave, his arch nemesis Captain Gravy Bones arrives claiming the treasure for his own. It seems as though they will have to fight for it, until an ancient witchdoctor appears commanding them to end their bickering. He devises that they race from Tortuga to Cuba and back, and whoever wins will get the treasure. The two pirates agree to go along with it, but don’t intend to play fair. The pirates sabotage, ambush, team up with other pirates, black mail, and fight each other to win. But little do they know, the witchdoctor is keeping them away from the treasure for his own reasons. Join the crews of Captain Kill and Gravy Bones as they battle each other and race for “The Great Incan Treasure of Confusion.” Plays for high school students and audiences.

PIRATE APPRECIATION DAY – COMEDY SCRIPT ABOUT PIRATES

Harken, mateys! Modern piracy no longer has its “good” name — or so claims the Pirate Appreciation Movement. This group of buccaneers believes commandeering a cruise ship on the Talk Like a Pirate Day holiday is the proper route to infamy. Its saltiest members, Walker D. Plank and sidekick Halitosis Halvard, sneak aboard the M.S. Stillwater as it departs for a Caribbean cruise.

They discover more than they bargained for in a colorful ensemble of fellow passengers. Frederick Feedle Fillingsworth is a fugitive museum curator with a valuable stolen artifact. Teenage nerd Paisley Nettleton is a prodigy of ancient languages and archeology, hovered over by his squabbling parents, Ned and Doris. The Captain — the hairiest man of the Seven Seas — would do anything to win the affections of Bridget, the mysterious yeoman.

By the time night falls on the first day at sea, a tentacled monster will be summoned, a sword fight will be fought with plastic butter knives, and someone will take a one-way voyage to Davy Jones’s locker. Aye so, but ’tis good to be a pirate!

The Waynesboro Players Community Theater premiered the play on Feb. 23–26, 2012 for a 4-show run in Waynesboro, VA. and was hailed as an “Uproarious comedy” by the Augusta Free Press.
