Pirate Life Collective, established 2014 is a site specific and interactive children’s theatre. Our stage is a 45 foot recreation pirate ship the “Island Rogue” complete with functioning water cannons and licensed by Transport Canada.
The adventure begins on shore when the pirate cast invites our audience to join the crew with costumes and face paint tattoos. We play a few games and get the crew into the spirit then board the vessel and sail around Toronto’s Inner Harbour and the Toronto islands in search of sunken treasure. The performance includes 30 minutes of on shore activities and 1 hour aboard the boat.
Our collective is seeking young, inspire actors to work with our collective in creating a new show for the 2017 season. We perform 3-6 shows per day.
ACTING ROLES: Captain, First mate, Villain
The cast is encouraged to create their own characters for the performance and portray each of the roles stated above.
Cast should be comfortable with interactive productions, improvisation and working with children aged 3-11 years as well as their parents.
The cast meets the audience and invites them into our world, while in character from start to finish, providing the costumes and face paint tattoos to our new recruits.
EXTRA ACTING RESPONSIBILITIES: As a member of the collective we also send our crew to meet our audience in public spheres. Actors, in costume will attend festivals and events (such as school fun fairs, fundraisers and others) and in a buskeresque way meet the public.
