    Year 1 Production: Pirates vs. Mermaids

    We invite all parents, carers, brothers, sisters, grannies and grandpas to Me Hearty High, the most distinguished pirate school on the seven seas, where the trainee pirates cannot wait to graduate and become proper pirates. There is only one problem… none of them can swim! If they cannot swim, they will fail their R Levels. And, then what will they do? The answer lies with the mermaids, but the pirates do not like the mermaids and the mermaids do not like the pirates!
