THE PIRATE QUEEN

March 2018

Appleton North Theatre announces the spring 2018 musical: The Pirate Queen, featuring the life and adventures of the 16th century Irish chieftain and pirate Grace O’Malley, written by the team behind Les Miserables and Miss Saigon.

The Pirate Queen is an epic musical adventure celebrating the legendary Irish Chieftain Grace O'Malley. Based on her real-life story, Grace is a compelling, inspiring heroine who led an extraordinary life as a pirate, lover and mother in 16th-century Ireland. To protect her people and save her one true love, O'Malley must confront the one woman more powerful than her — her fierce rival, Queen Elizabeth I of England.

From the writers of Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, the show combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is both an historic romance and a timeless epic.
