Shiver me timbers! There are treasure chests of new and fun things going on at the new SKITS spring play, “Jolly Rogers and The Pirate Queen,” set for Friday and Saturday at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. at the United Methodist Church in Shell Knob.

Doors open Friday and Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. Come early to chow down on some tasty pirate food, and proceeds go to Noah’s Ark Day Care. Here’s a sample of what ye can expect:

Pirate ships (Hot Dogs)

Twisted swords with pirate gold (pretzel w/cheese)

Polly’s crackers with pirate gold (nachos)

Dress like a pirate and get free popcorn. Join the pirate costume contest for the chance of a prize and a guaranteed load of laughs. SKITS guarantees not to make anyone walk the gangplank.

On Saturday at 6 p.m. a local musician who plays around the lake area will perform. He also tells bad jokes and hands out “gold” doubloons to those who know the answers to a few trivia questions.

As if all of this is not a “fun” overload, Gerald Thomas, a talented young artist from Stella, will be displaying his paints as the local artisan at all three of the local performances. He is even painting several pieces for the troupe.

Theatre-goers can get all the details and tickets at shellknobspotlight.com. Tickets will also be available at the door.
