    AHOY, MATEY! When Captain Braid Beard and his crew invite Jeremy Jacob to join their voyage, it’s the swashbuckling time of his life! No vegetables or table manners, and you get to have sword fights whenever you want. But Jeremy soon misses things like getting tucked into bed, goodnight kisses and story time.

    A heave-ho, blow-the-man-down tale you won’t want to miss!

    Mark Adams returns to direct How I Became a Pirate after directing Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells at MST earlier this season. Claudia Dyle is the Music Director. Rodrick Randall (Schoolhouse Rock, Live (Tour)) plays Captain Braid Beard and Richard Romeo (The BFG) plays Jeremy Jacob. The rest of the cast includes Philip Hays, Jessica Knapp, Luke Wright, and Zack Varela.

    The design team includes Jodi Bobrovsky (set design), Kathryn Eader (lighting design), Macy Perrone (costume design), Shawn W. St. John (sound design), and Tina Montgomery (properties design). Lauren Dolk is the Choreographer. Kevin Zahradnik is the Production Stage Manager.

    PARKING UPDATE AT CHELSEA MARKET (MAY 2014):

    As you may or may not be aware, Main Street Theater's Chelsea Market activities will move to the MATCH once it's built.  The MATCH is the Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston and will break ground on May 7, 2014.  We hope to be able to move out of Chelsea market into our new home at the MATCH in the fall of 2015.  There's more information on the MATCH here: http://www.matchouston.org/

    IN THE MEANTIME:
    You may have noticed that Chelsea Market has recently lost half its parking lot in a sale to a developer. In addition, our lease on that space has expired, BUT we are being allowed to stay through our 2015 season, providing we can find solutions to some of the parking problems our activities create. This affects all our programs: the showcases on Saturday mornings, our schoolday performances, and our weekend family matinees.  We are very grateful to be able to stay at Chelsea until the MATCH is ready.  

    We want to do everything we can to help our fellow tenants and our landlord, so:

    • For SATURDAY PERFORMANCES, we have received permission from the Joy School across Chelsea Blvd. to use their parking lot.  If it is convenient for you, please check this lot first for parking and walk across the courtyard to the theater. 
    • There's also quite a bit of on-street parking on Chelsea Blvd.     

     We hope this will also make it easier for YOU as you won't have to deal with the stress of a full Chelsea Market parking lot!
