Avast ye landlubbers, pirates are making their way to Salisbury. It has been over 300 years since Blackbeard has been seen in North Carolina, but we have heard some other nefarious scallywags are making their way into town at the Norvell Theater in the next Piedmont Players Theatre Youth production.
“Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon Kids.” is an adaptation of the fourth of Mary Pope Osborne’s award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than a hundred countries around the world. This time around, Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover the power of friendship and the simple pleasures in everyday life.
The two siblings return to visit the magic tree house on a dreary, rainy day. They find a book where the sun is shining and the waves are crashing, and wish to travel to this tropical place. They find themselves in the 18-century Caribbean, the time of pirates. The siblings meet Captain Bones, a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help him find buried treasure. It’s up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the tree house and make their way home.
“This is a family friendly production filled with music, sea creatures, and pirates,” says Reid Leonard of Piedmont Players. “We are excited to have Heather Wilson-Bowlby join us as guest director for this production. Look for our well known eye-catching sets and breath-taking costumes that our audiences have grown accustom to expect from PPT.”

“Pirates Past Noon Kids” will be performed at the Norvell Theater, 135 East Fisher St. on Nov 9-10 and Nov 16-17 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students at 704-633-5471 or PiedmontPlayers.com
