Tall Tales of the High Seas is a pirate-themed mainstage improv show at the Institution Theater.
Inspired by works like Treasure Island, Baron von Münchausen, Stardust and the Crimson Pirate we will spin totally, absolutely true yarns of bodice-ripping romance, unspeakable danger, sword-fights and exotic locations.
Every week two pirate captains will tell competing made-up stories based on audience suggestions. These tales are brought to life by our cast of improvisers and rated by the audience. The winner gets gold and glory, the loser gets put in the Tickle Sack… or worse.
It ran Fridays from 2/5/16 to 3/11/16.
