Captain Stirrick

Captain Stirrick
A dramatic look at the troubling times of King George III, based on the ballads of nineteenth-century London.

From the National Youth Music Theatre, one of the leading creators of shows for young performers, Captain Stirrick boasts a score that is based on the ballads of nineteenth-century London streets, as well as a libretto that is littered with stories of torment and deception. Such a riveting story is rarely seen in musical theatre.

Captain Ned Stirrick, the offspring of a late sea captain, is unarguably and ideally fit to act as the leader of his ragtag gang of child thieves. He's the most traveled and the most level-headed, and he has led the most incredible life... or so he claims. The smooth waters upon which Ned has seemed to sail so comfortably are soon to toss him about like a marionette.

Shining just as brilliantly as the stories are the magnificently broad cast of characters. This show offers extensive opportunities for many featured roles. Perfect for an organization that is dense with diversity and looking to sink its teeth into a uniquely rewarding project, Captain Stirrick inspires reflection long after the curtain has fallen.
