Grace the PirateEngland - 1601 Grace the Pirate reveals the more whimsical aspects of pirate life. Grace O'Malley establishes her student crew and the rules for sailing aboard her vessel. With the aide of her newly 'recruited' quartermaster, boatswain and crew, Grace sets off with map in hand to find the treasure of Blackbeard the Pirate. Once at sea, she entertains her crew with one of their favorite folktales. However, the crew hasn't sailed for long before the dreaded Blackbeard appears. A friendly struggle of wits, dancing skills and athletic competitions ensues to determine who shall win the treasure map. The two mighty pirates finally agree to work together to find the treasure and the booty is shared by all.

The character Grace O'Malley is based on the historical Irish pirate that sailed during the Elizabethan period. She is feisty, strong-willed and fearless. Bedecked in her Elizabethan vest, skirt, knickers, boots and hat, she is a true swashbuckler from the 17th century.



From 2:00-3:45 pm, also in Manalapan on January 21

In this sequel to Pixar's 2003 smash hit Finding Nemo, lovable, amnesiac blue tang Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) goes off in search of her long-lost parents. With the help of young clown fish Nemo (Hayden Rolence) and his dad Marlin (Albert Brooks), Dory hopes to find a place she can call home.

Feel free to bring a snack to enjoy! Everyone welcome! No tickets or registration required.
