Pirates of the Curry Bean - Year 5 performance

Term 5 brings a pirate flavour in the form of the Year 5 performance Pirates of the Curry Bean.  The performance will take place at 6pm on the 23rd of May.


The children have been given their roles and scripts to learn over Easter in preparation for rehearsals at the start of term 5.  Costume and prop information will be forthcoming soon.


Scores for the music are available below.




PIRATES – can wear traditional red and black with striped tops, knee length trousers, bandanas and striped socks/tights. If you already have a pirate costume from last year this will be fine.

SAILORS – can be dressed in naval blue and white, with white trousers, blue and white striped tops and sailor hats.

COD AND HORNHONKER – could wear more elaborate blue and white uniforms.

REDBEARD – could have a red “Hook” style costume.

THE PERIWINKLE FAMILY – need a slight pirate flavour, possibly with black and white striped skirts, trousers and bandanas.

NATIVES- can be dressed in various ways, from Hawaiian grass skirts to cavemen style animal print.

Keep everything colourful – and remember, you can’t have too many stripes!


Please let us know as soon as possible if you need help with costumes.
