All that changes following the surprise visit of a mysterious sailor on the run from a one-legged pirate named Silver. Soon, they find themselves headed straight for adventure on a ship bound for the West Indies and the infamous Skull Island.
This family friendly production will be performed outdoors in NOMA's new amphitheater within the Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Seating is bring-your-own and food trucks and a bar will be on site nightly.

MEET THE WRITERS
& Alex Martinez Wallace
AJ, James, and Alex have been close friends and collaborators for nearly twenty years. After meeting one another as college freshmen at NYU, they studied together at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting where they, along with friend Andrew Larimer, founded The NOLA Project in 2005. Following that, they all moved to New Orleans to grow The NOLA Project and become more involved in our local theatre community here. As a writer, James Bartelle has written A KINGDOM OF STATUES, SHE REMEMBERS, ALIEN STATUS, and GO ELF YA SELF for the company, in addition to collaborating with Wallace on THE SPIDER QUEEN. A.J. Allegra has penned OREGON TRAIL: THE PLAY! as well as A RATED R CHRISTMAS CAROL for the company. Outside of theatre, James is an accomplished visual artist, Alex can be heard singing in venues on Bourbon Street and around the city, and A.J. enjoys teaching theatre to students at Lusher Charter School. Writing this play together was a tad too much fun.
