About the Musical
The musical, Sea Saul’s Shipwreck, is a relatable story with high energy, original music about a bullying pirate who learns to give up his pride-filled pirating way. The story of Pirate Captain Sea Saul will sound familiar to another bully’s story from Acts 8 &9. Join Captain Sea Saul, his pet parrot Judith, and pirate crew as they find themselves shipwrecked on an ancient island! Meet a goofy group of islanders who get bullied into taking the pirate on a treasure hunt. The hunt doesn’t last long after the Captain is blinded by a coconut falling on his head. It isn’t until the islanders take the Captain to one special and sparkly character who offers not only to heal the Captain that Captain Sea Saul finally gains new sight as he realizes that he doesn’t have to stay a bullying pirate. He can be freed to find a new life. With his new white flag raised in surrender, and a new compass to lead the way- Sea Saul is finally ready to head in the right direction, discover the greatest treasure of all, and leave his bullying ways behind.
