 June 19,2018 - August 10, 2018

Directed by Eric Morris
Old Log Theatre presents an Excelsior Entertainment production of HOW I BECAME A PIRATE. 
Sail off on a fantastic musical excursion when a band of comical pirates lands at North Beach looking for an expert digger to join their crew. Braid Beard and his mates enlist young Jeremy Jacob, as they try to find the perfect spot to bury their treasure. Jeremy finds that adventuring can be lots of fun, but also learns that love and home are treasures you can’t find on any map! The whole family will love this delightful and swashbuckling musical adventure!




Directed by Eric Morris

Over the past two years, Eric has found a wonderful artistic home at the Old Log.  Audiences have seen him break four pianos as Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet, entertain brides and grooms as Robbie Hart in The Wedding Singer, and swindle the rich as Freddy Benson in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.  During those two years at the Old Log, Eric has also produced a few concerts, stage managed a Dragon, turned microphones on and off,  took some Instagram pictures, and sold some tickets.  Eric is thrilled to embark on his next Old Log journey of assembling a team of wonderful collaborators and mounting a music-theater production.

When not at the Old Log, Eric spends tons of time working with Nautilus Music-Theater in St. Paul.  Nautilus is dedicated to exploring the intricacies of the music-theater art form as well as developing singer-actors for success in that field.  With Nautilus, Eric has also worked on the development of brand new music-theater pieces such as “TWISTED APPLES: Tales from Winesburg, Ohio.”  Eric has also participated in their Wesley Balk Opera/Music-Theatre Institute as a director and a performer.

Eric has collaborated with dozens of theatres in the Twin Cities and all over the country.  Eric has a BFA in Musical Theater from Ithaca College.  Thanks to Greg and Kent for this exciting opportunity.
