Best-selling author Melinda Long’s swashbuckling treasure hunt How I Became a Pirate comes to the stage in an Omaha Theater Company musical production. The tale of young Jeremy Jacob and his encounter with Captain Braid Beard brims with adventure as the lad embarks on a quest for buried treasure and learns about pirate customs. “One of the things that pirates represent for kids is a life free from care, a life of giddy abandon, where you can do whatever you want,” says the show’s director Rob Urbinati. “I want Pirate to have that kind of exuberance, and that’s what I want the audience … to experience.” One of the oldest, largest, and most respected children’s theatrical organizations in the United States, Omaha Theater Company was founded in 1949.
