Wandering the World
August 1, 2006

ALL EARS® Team Member Linda Mac had the chance to check out the new "Pirates Tutorial" being held daily in front of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction this summer. She files this report, with photos:

The show starts with Mac pulling the cart out to the street to the left of Pirates of the Caribbean. He puts down a rope and talks to the audience about pirating and Captain Jack. He was a riot and perfect for the part. The picture of Jack standing in the background was taken when Mac (the silly one) talks about his boss without anyone knowing Jack was there, including Mac.

After a some interaction between Jack and Mac, they bring up four young kids up to learn to sword fight, then bring a few more up to pretend to use buckets to get water out of a ship. Finally they bring a few more kids up to the group to pledge to be a pirate and the kids get a parchment scroll for passing Jack Sparrow's Pirates Tutorial. Great, funny street show with lots of improv because of the kids. Mac even poses for photos after the show.

It was listed on the attraction sign near Casey's on Main Street, but not in the printed Times Guide. The show lasted about 15-20 minutes.
