The Grand Order Acting Troupe is pleased to announce the debut performance of their fifth play, and first ever musical, "Yarrr, arrr me hearty!". The musical is the epic tale of adventure, yearning, proper Shire values and... er... pirates! Yer will just have to watch the play to find out! Music will be provided by the Brandy Badgers, the music collective of the Grand Order.

Date: Sunday 3rd March
Time: 7:30PM UK/GMT (2:30PM servertime)
Location: Brandywine river, Shire side of the river. Rock by the river bank just east of the Golden Perch, The Marish (location 32.3S 63.2W), Laurelin server

This will be an open-air play, being performed on the banks of the Brandywine river, with good seating for the audience on the bare ground (bring blankets, though).

This is a hobbit-preferred event, so all hobbits are most welcome to the play. Well-behaved dwarves and lankyshanks are also welcome, although those with long legs are requested to respect the customs of the hobbits, and to stand at the back so as not to obscure the view of the locals.

Please try and arrive around 15 minutes before the play is due to start to allow time to settle.

We hope to see many of you there!

- Signed
Tula, Lina and Simbo

OOC: Be aware of the LOTRO chat bug, where people are unable to read what others write in /say. Try to get close to the actors before the play stars, to "catch" their chat range. Please also limit the amount of your own chat and emotes when the play is performed. The play is expected to last approx. 60 minutes.

Oh, and to whet yer appetites, here and here are a couple of teaser videos.
