The Prairie Pirates


“It’s the perfect hiding place, who would ever think of looking for a Pirate’s treasure in Iowa?” No one except for a few determined kids in a race to save their town. In this family-friendly comedy, a group of kids discover a map and must rely on their wits to solve its riddle and unearth the treasure. The entire town is in jeopardy as Captain Sneevly forecloses on all the outstanding bank loans. His plan is to dig up the hidden treasure first. The kids realize they’re not the only ones looking for the loot. As the kids solve the riddle it leads them to old Mrs. Meanly Greenly’s yard. Should they take the treasure from her yard? Should they split the treasure with her? Is there really a treasure? To what lengths are the kids willing to go to save their town? The kids face a bigger battle than the Pirates who are in hot pursuit.

Dove Review

Some of you may remember the old cartoon with the evil “Snidley Whip Lash”, well this is the modern day version with some of the same characteristics. This time it is pirates and young kids instead of the Mounted Police. Slap-stick comedy throughout the story will have everyone laughing. “Prairie Pirates” is filled with hilarious characters, funny chase scenes and some black and white film footage that will keep the entire family entertained.
