It’s a pirate life in the upcoming production of “Jolly Roger & the Pirate Queen” at Whidbey Island Theatre for Youth, in Oak Harbor. Join the cast of 15 young actors, ages 5 to 14, for this crazy adventure to Treasure Island, as Roger Goodman (Josh Blyther) seeks to win the hand of his lady love, Sarah Huffington (Caroline Jungmann). Along the way we meet characters of Long John Sliver (Noah Leach) and Bluebeard the Pirate (Jolene George), a colorful pirate crew, the parents of Miss Sarah, who just happen to be dropping by Treasure Island while out for a weekend cruise, and of course a parrot, because no pirate tale is complete without one. So hoist the Jolly Roger and set sail for May 21, 22 and 23 at 6:30 p.m., or May 23 at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $7. Call for reservations at 675-1084, or visit www.WIT4Y.com. Whidbey Island Theatre for Youth is located at 350 Pioneer Wy Suite 101..
