The show runs through July 11 at TheatreNOW.
WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -
TheatreNOW's newest dinner theater production takes you to the high seas. It's called The Gentleman Pirate Musical.
Stede Bonnet is not your typical pirate. He's much too refined, until he meets up with Blackbeard for lessons on swashbuckling, sword play and sea shanties.
In some of TheatreNOW's previous productions actors have interacted with the audience, but not this time.
"No, I'm afraid that we don't mostly because they would be so scared to death they wouldn't be able to finish their delicious dinner," Zach Hanner said.
But there are plenty of other reasons to see the show.
"We've got a mighty fine fiddler on stage and we'll be playing some music during the show, some original tunes and some tunes that you might be familiar with, sea-faring sort of tunes," Hanner said. "The show itself is a fast moving, dramatic show that has a fair amount of comedy and a touch of music, all served with a delicious repast of pirate food."
