As a performer with First Stage Children’s Theater, I was fortunate to visit Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin for our annual end-of-season performance there. And what a show it was! The production is called “How I Became A Pirate.”
We left the Todd Wehr Theater at the Marcus Center in downtown Milwaukee in our costumes and five of us “pirates” rode in my dad’s van. It was particularly amusing to pass people on the street who noticed a van full of pirates. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, the staff at Children’s Hospital couldn’t have been more gracious and friendly. They joked with us about how we probably didn’t need to wear visitor passes because we would be fairly easy to identify.
