Pirate Motions Movement Exploration The easiest way to begin creating a character is to explore different ways of walking. At first, everyone will be walking as himself or herself. Later, they will walk like pirates might walk. Once normal walking has been established, ask everyone to vary their walks. Begin by giving them specific conditions to react to: • Move as though you are walking in sticky, gooey mud. • Walk as though you are barefoot on hot sand at the beach. • Move as though you were wading through water. • Move as though you were seasick Then expand by having them react to different environments: • Walk as though you are going through a jungle, searching for buried treasure, with lots of bushes and vines in your way. • Walk as though you are trapped in prison, and cannot escape. • Walk as if you were sneaking past a sleeping guard to steal the keys of your friend’s prison cell, and you don’t want to wake the guard up • Walk as though you woke the guard up and he is running after you! • Turn the room into the ocean, and have them sail the stormy seas.

As with most of the designs ,it is aimed at a quick face which beginners can easily master with a bit of practice. 1. Start by applying black with a stipple sponge to the lower part of the face to make stubble. Pirates don’t shave !! Make one eyebrow thicker using black. 2. Using a sponge cover the other eye with black to make an eye patch. 3. Still using a sponge add orange (or any color) across the forehead for a bandana. Pirate Day in Adventure Ocean 4. Outline the eye patch and add a strap. Also outline the bandana, adding a couple of black lines across the orange to give the impression of the material being folded and outline the knot. 5.

Adventure Ocean Pirates Underlined Italics are the lines spoken by the kids. Pirate Tale Voice and Movement Exercises Pirate Tale #1 As the tale is read, use the words in Redbeard’s Fishy Tale parenthesis to guide the children in the telling of the tale. Long ago, when pirates ruled the waves, the wicked Redbeard sat grumpily in the alehouse listening to other scurvy pirates telling tall tales (Let’s see you all sitting grumpily). One cloaked figure was speaking of a special treasure. “A fish” he breathed, “made out of pure gold…sitting just two hundred yards out in Dead Man’s Cove.” Redbeard barked, “Liar! If ‘twere true you’d have had it yourself!” The cloaked pirate bellowed back, “No one shall dare call me a liar!”, and when he pulled off his cloak, all who saw him turned pale for it was none other then the dreaded Blackbeard himself! (Let’s all cower at the name of BLACKBEARD!) Blackbeard said, “The fish has a curse placed upon it-none who steal it survive the night!” Redbeard would not back down. He barked, “I’ll wager one hundred gold doubloons that I can find this golden fish!” The bet was on. Redbeard sailed to Dead Man’s Cove where he easily found the golden fish and brought it to his ship. He would guard it till morning when Blackbeard would come to his ship and be forced to give him the hundred gold doubloons! (Put your golden fish right beside you, and guard it carefully!) That night Redbeard woke to a spooky voice whispering “Put me back!” (Repeat those words in your spookiest fish voice) He looked around and saw no person, only the golden fish. Redbeard rasped, “I shall not,” But then he heard the voice again, louder. “Put me back!” (Let’s hear it again!) The terrified, but resolute pirate moaned “NEVER!”, but he heard the voice once more. “PUT ME BACK!” (Be very spooky and VERY insistent) The Pirate screamed, “Over Pirate Day in Adventure Ocean my dead body! You’re mine now and forev…” His voice stopped in mid-sentence, while in the sky there was a clap of thunder, a flash of lightning, and then…darkness! The next morning, Blackbeard sailed forth to meet Redbeard. No one came out to meet him, so finally he drew close enough to board the ship. An amazing and strange sight greeted him. There were no men, but the deck was covered in flapping fish! (Let’s all be flapping fish.) Blackbeard waded through the fish until he found the golden treasure. Next to it flapped a gasping red fish, which somehow had remained alive. “I warned you,” gloated Blackbeard, as he tipped the fish into the ocean. (Tip your golden fish into the ocean) He then returned the golden fish to its proper place in the cove and ordered Redbeard’s boat to be sunk. A good pirate knows when to respect a curse! Pirate Tale Voice and Movement Exercises Pirate Tale #2 As the tale is read, use the words in The Mysterious Tale of Peg Leg parenthesis to guide the children in the Pete telling of the tale. Peg Leg Pete was always sitting out on the Pirate Bay docks, polishing his wooden leg with a cloth. He had only his parrot, Bluebeak, for company and would tell the story of how he came by his leg to anyone who asked. His story went like this: Twenty years ago I was out treasure hunting on the Tall Trees Lagoon in me trusty boat., or at least I thought she was trusty until she ran aground during the worst storm the lagoon had ever seen! (Can you make the sounds of the storm for me?) The winds were so strong they whistled between the trees and made strange and eerie noises. So Bluebeak and me, we hunkered down to wait for the storm to pass. This was when I saw it. Bluebeak corrected Peg Leg Pete with a shriek, “WE saw it!” (You should all help me by repeating all the words Bluebeak says in an excellent parrot-y voice). Well, yes Bluebeak, WE saw it…There was a glow! A golden glow coming from a wooden chest sunk in the shallows of the water. Now, as any Pirate worth his sea salt knows, where there’s a golden glow, there’s treasure, and Bluebeak squawked with glee “Treasure!” (Repeat that word in your best Parrot!) I was just about to stick me hands into the water to grab up the treasure when a golden-scaled fish appeared. The fish said, “I wouldn’t do that if I were you.” (Repeat those words with a scary fish voice) Holy Mackerel!!! a talking fish! The creepy fish continued: “I am the guardian of the treasure of Tall Trees Lagoon. It is said that any man who so much as lays a finger on this glowing gold will be scarily cursed.” Well, I thought I was cleverer Pirate Day in Adventure Ocean than this fish. Not a finger you say? And so I took off me stinky pirate boot and I opened the pirate chest using only my big toe! Bluebeak parroted in “Uh-oh!” (Now you say Uh-oh) Uh oh is right! The moment I touched that treasure my leg started tingling and before you knew it…WHAM…I had this here peg leg. (Why don’t you give me great big WHAM!). The golden fish snickered “I told you so,” and he smirked…as best a fish can smirk. (What does your fish smirk look like?) Pete rubbed his wooden leg with a cloth until it had a mysterious golden glow. (Rub your legs) Pete laughed. “But we showed that fish didn’t we, Bluebeak?” Bluebeak snapped his beak twice. Smack, smack! (Snap your beaks) He said, “Delicious fish!” (Now you say it!) Peg Leg Pete grinned. Would you believe it? Ever since Bluebeak ate that fish he’s had the gift of the gab! He can’t keep his beak shut! “AHOY, AHOY” for Adventure Theater Ahoy, Ahoy For Adventure Theatre will be performed in the Talent Show. So that the pressure to memorize the words doesn’t interfere with the total experience, a CD is provided that has the song orchestration and guide vocals. ACT I Teach the lyrics and rhythm of the CHORUS along with finger play choreography. Teach this without the CD, using just the children to create the soundtrack. What is Finger Play Choreography? By linking the learning of lyrics to simple movement, we help the children memorize faster, while choreographing at the same time. The repetition of the material builds-in rehearsal time, while becoming thespringboard from which all classes begin. The children gain self esteem through mastering movement. Repetition is the key! ACT II Review the CHORUS and finger play choreography, adding the playing of the CD. Teach the lyrics and rhythm of the BRIDGE. ACT III Review everything previously taught and add the VERSE, thereby completing the learning of the lyrics and rhythm of the entire song. “AHOY, AHOY” Lyrics Bridge: Verse 1: (spoken) Dive into a world filled with story and song Where you can become someone magic and new. All aboard! Set off for a land where you cannot go wrong (Stomp stomp, stomp stomp, stomp stomp!) Bring your imagination along What will you see? Anchors up! It’s all up to you. (Clink clank, clink clank, clink clank!) Chorus: Wave goodbye! Ahoy, ahoy for Adventure Theater (Bye bye, bye bye, bye bye!)
