A good friend of mine was finishing on the Super Yacht that she had worked on for a couple years, and it was time for her to have a going away party. So on this particular festive occasion we jumped ship and headed to the ‘Adult Pirate Show’. I always love a good reason to get dolled up and dress like classy ladies;) The show is held in Magaluf, one of the big party spots of Mallorca. In the summer Magaluf goes off, and is full of Endless bars, rides, shows, and people celebrating, stag’s, birthdays, graduations, promotions…. Well really any given reason to have a crazy celebration(even if it’s just celebrating being alive) is a reason enough for people to head to Megaluf and let LOOSE! It’s full of debauchery.
The pirate show has its own permanent venue, and this is their 29th year in production, there is a dinner show for the whole family, or the late show for the more mature(well supposedly) audience;) With no food, only liquid diets. The venue itself is great, it’s quite big, and has ample space to seat large groups of people. After seated we got right in there and started with some Sangria. For those of you whom are picky with your drinks, bare in mind this Sangria comes from a container, so it isn’t freshly made, but it does the job to wet your whistle while you decided what else you may like. Literally, I personally can only have 1 of those prepackaged sangria’s, otherwise it’s sickly.
Lights, Camera, Action! The lights dim and the music goes up, and the show begins. There is a ring leader who comes out and does the talking and narration in between sets. Dressed a little more risqué, and using sexual innuendoes when he is speaking, mainly to go along with the ‘Adult’ theme. The acrobatics in the show is absolutely beyond impressive. With people, jumping, flying, and flipping all over the show. And they truly do a good job of getting the energy in the room up, and people clapping and cheering, and being in ‘Awe’ and amazement, for the whole 2 hours of the evening entertainment.
In the end though, the show really didn’t seem to have anything to do with Pirates. Other then the pirate ship on the stage, that was used as a prop and the costumes. Really it was some swearing, and sexual jokes, along with extremely fit acrobats, doing some very impressive stunts.
Can’t complain though, it was tons of fun, and I would do it again! Not a bad way to spend an evening with a great group of people:)
