The Big Book of Pirates

Join the South Australian Maritime Museum for the Big Book of Pirates, a guide for the brave, the not so brave, and the total scaredy-cats amongst you, into the world of pirates!

Watch the not quite ferocious Captain Salmon Beard, and his not very mean and only a little bit horrible crew, as they bumble their way across one or two of the seven seas, with The Big Book of Pirates as their guide!

Do they have what it takes to join the celebrated pantheon of such famous pirates as Bluebeard, Long John Silver, and the notorious pirate queen Teuta of Illyria? Or will it all end in disaster, mayhem, and an awkward retreat back home?

Come dressed in your pirate gear, follow the crew on their blundering misadventures, and maybe even show them a thing or two!

7 to 25 January 2019 | Weekdays performances at 11am and 1pm, $6 per child includes the lighthouse (bookings not required).
SA Maritime Museum: 126 Lipson Street, Port Adelaide.
