Takes place outdoors at the Safe Harbor Gazebo, 60 Ocean St., Rockland



Eight-year-old Lucy and her goofy pal Little Chucky are searching for buried treasure, but a gang of bumbling pirates keeps getting in the way!  The kids get some help from their new ocean-dwelling friends, including enthusiastic superhero Lobster Boy, his reluctant sidekick Crabby, and an overgrown sea monkey. “Everybody Loves Pirates” features 15 of our hand-crafted mouth and rod puppets, and an 8 foot paper-mache pirate ship.

Open to all ages
Runtime: 50-60 minutes

About the SUNSHINE SERIES 2024
Our new SUNSHINE SERIES presents outdoor performances for kids and families, taking place at the beautiful Safe Harbor Gazebo at 60 Ocean St in Rockland on select Thursday mornings and one super Sunday afternoon! Featuring a stellar line-up of circus acts, puppet shows, musical guests, and cultural activities, this new series is open to all ages and admission is Pay-What-You-Can ($0-20).  Each performance is 50-60 minutes long, and appropriate for all ages. Seating is on the concrete floor of the gazebo, so blankets and chairs are welcome. Attendees may use the restroom facilities at the Rockland Harbor YMCA. In case of inclement weather, the performance will take place indoors at the Strand Theatre. Please check our website and social media the day of the event for weather updates.

The SUNSHINE SERIES is co-produced by the Coastal Children’s Museum, presented by J. Edward Knight Insurance, and sponsored by OUT Maine, Safe Harbor, and the Rockland Harbor YMCA.
