‘I’ll sing you a tale of Vampirates,
a tale as old as true
I’ll sing you a song of an ancient ship,
and its mighty fearsome crew!’

The year is 2505.  The oceans have risen. A new era of piracy is dawning.

After twins Grace and Connor Tempest are evicted from their lighthouse home, a vicious storm separates them, destroying their boat and leaving them fighting for their lives in the freezing sea.

vampiratesRescued by a notorious pirate ship, Connor finds new friends and a new life – but does he really want to be a Pirate?
Grace finds herself on board a more mysterious ship whose crew she sees only at night. Locked in her cabin she struggles to discover more about the enigmatic Captain and her own fate …
Can the twins survive life on board- and find their way back – to each other!?

This engaging and mysterious adventure is told by a cast of three, in a physical style awash with theatrical techniques for students to sink their teeth into.
A fang-tastic introduction to creating inventive, vivacious devised theatre, using simple set, new music, multi roling, mime, song and narration. Directed by Gavin Robertson, of West End ‘Thunderbirds F.A.B’ fame, it is both funny and epic, atmospheric and engaging! www.gavinrobertson.com
