Meet a modern woman born too far in the past. Marliana always felt free to shape her own destiny. Her father never put her in dresses, never asked her to sit still and stay clean. He taught her to sail, to fish and be self-reliant. When the dreaded pirate, Captain Squall, took her father, Marliana watched in horror, for no one in town defended him. As Squall’s ship sailed toward the horizon, Marliana and her sisters packed up their schooner and set off to rescue their father.

This comedic drama, composed by Mr. Todd, has been performed at LINX three times and is always the favorite of actors who join the adventure. It is exceptional because every line is sung, in the tradition of Hamilton and Les Misérables. The exciting score is specifically designed so that performers of every skill level can perform with complete confidence.
