Pirates vs Ninjas: THE MUSICAL

The Overtime Theater proudly presents Pirates vs Ninjas: The Musical, a hilarious musical by Scott McDowell with performances running from August 26 to September 17, 2022. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. with one Sunday matinee on September 11 at 3 p.m. at The Overtime Theater located at 5409 Bandera Road, Suite 205 on the city’s Northwest Side. In accordance with Covid-19 recommendations, there will be limited and distanced seating. Audience members are encouraged to wear face masks.

We have traveled to the land of San Texania where, for ages untold, the pirates and the ninjas have been at odds with one another.  The current generation looks like it will continue the tradition – until the Pirate Princess and Ninja Princess lock eyes across a crowded room and suddenly there is love!!  But will it be enough to overcome a lot of really, really deep dislike?  Even with all the dancing and singing? 

“People have said that we’re ripping off West Side Story,” says director Rob Barron, “but that seems like a mean thing for them to say so we told them ‘Hey!  There’s no pirates in West Side Story!  So there!’  I actually always felt like Romeo and Juliet would have benefited from a couple of sea shanties, frankly.”

Dedicated to providing original, innovative, and accessible entertainment at an affordable price, The Overtime Theater is a nonprofit organization with the mission of bringing “theater for the people” to the San Antonio community through new and thought-provoking stage productions.
