Blackbeard and his pirates are on stage tonight.

Dozens of local children are performing tonight with Missoula Children’s Theater in the Covington Arts Council presentation of “Blackbeard the Pirate.”

Based in Missoula, Mont., the MCT sends professional actor/directors to communities to audition and cast 50 to 60 local school children in a full-length, original musical production.

Students auditioned on Monday, practiced every day this week, and performed for fourth graders during the school day yesterday. That presentation was sponsored by the Andalusia Junior Woman’s Club.

The public performance is set for 6 tonight, Sat., Oct. 13, in the Dixon Center of LBWCC. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students.

The production is made possible in part by the Alabama State Council on the Arts. Covington Electric Cooperative is the corporate sponsor, and Southeast Alabama Gas District and Sunbelt Rentals are corporate donors.
