Fairfield Prep Story Pirates Visit St Raphaels

Prep brought in professional actors called the Story Pirates who visit elementary schools and run writing workshops. The stories that the elementary school kids write in these workshops are sent back to the Story Pirates, who turn them into a series of short plays, and return to the school to perform them for the students. The Prep Players headed to St. Raphael Academy in Bridgeport to run a writing workshop with their third grade.  

After the writing workshop with them in September, the students from the third grade sent the Prep Story Pirates 50 stories. The players selected eight of those stories and turned them into remarkable short plays full of imagination, creativity and general silliness. The cast returned there on November 3 to perform a full show based on the stories the kids have written.
