Rose Theatre’s HOW I BECAME A PIRATE Earns Rave from Omaha World Herald!

The Omaha Theatre Company at the Rose Theatre, one of the nation’s top Theatre for Young Audiences organizations, has just opened Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman’s sparkling adaptation of  the beloved book How I Became a Pirate written by Melinda Long and illustrated by David Shannon. Directed by Rob Urbanati, the show garnered stellar reviews, including a rave from the Omaha World Herald’s Jane Palmer. Palmer praised every facet of the show writing, “Timing, acting, singing, costuming, choreography and staging have the quality of a touring Broadway production.”

HOW I BECAME A PIRATE joined the TRW catalogue family just a short time ago and quickly became one of our most requested titles. Authors Vogt and Friedman have a brilliant chemistry that captures the rollicking fun and tender nuance of the book in their wonderful stage adaptation.
