Pirate Poster Contest for Amelia Community Theatre

The Amelia Community theatre is announcing a contest to design the program and poster of their upcoming presentation, Pirates of Penzance. The new theatre building at 207 Cedar Street, in Fernandina Beach, will officially open on April 8th with this Gilbert and Sullivan classic.

The son of a wealthy 19th century man was to be apprenticed to a pilot, but due to a hard-of-hearing nurserymaid, was instead apprenticed to a pirate. Your submitted posters are to reflect the theme of the play so you may have to do a bit of research about this musical comedy of the young pirate Frederic and his attempt to be free of the pirate life.

Considering the rich pirate history in Fernandina Beach and on Amelia Island, the choosing of this play is perfect for their exciting grand opening. The many talented artists in our community may have to recall recent encounters with some of our own local Fernandina pirates for inspiration. The deadline to enter the contest is February 18th. Here are the rest of the details:
