This hour-long presentation of true stories take listeners back in time to the Golden Age of Piracy, when men (and women) abandoned home and country for a life ofadventure and freedom under the black flag.
Did you know that:
Many pirates were motivated by politics, rather than greed?
Pirates encompassed all races, religions, creeds and genders?
There was a Nation of Pirates in the Caribbean?
Pirates invented Worman's Compensation?
Blackbeard learning his pirating skills in a real-life pirate school?
By then end of my presentation, your visitors will know all this and more, and they'll be ready to sing a rousing chorus of "A Pirate's Life for Me!"
A children's version is also available.
A real pirate kept all his (or her!) stuff in a big wooden chest. In this educational and exciting presentation, Pirate Anne opens just such a chest. What will we find inside? Weapons? Treasure? Other surprises?
Whatever it is, it's sure to be fun and educational, as Pirate Anne leads children 6-12 on a historic adventure.
30-45 minutes, plus question and answer time!

Born in 1697, Anne Bonny became the most notorious

pirates, and her relationships with pirate captain

Mary Read, as she sailed the seas during the
Golden Age of Piracy.
This presentation is approximately 55 minutes long, with an additional 15 minutes for questions and answers. A table is requested for pirate memorabilia.
