The Royal Pyrate

a new musical

Music and Lyrics by Landon Marcus

Book by Chas Libretto

"The Royal Pyrate" is a new musical in development by Landon Marcus and Chas Libretto. It’s 1716 and poor sailor Sam Bellamy just met the woman of his dreams – she’s smart, she’s political, and she might just be a witch. He says he’ll do anything for her – and in doing so becomes the most infamous pirate of his age! But will he change the world for the better or burn it to the ground?
