TWO one-act plays will be acted out at Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre by Boston Children’s Theatre on Friday and Saturday night.

The two groups, one made up of eight-11-year-olds and the other of 11-16-year-olds, will be performing at the Spain Lane venue, from 7pm.

The younger group will perform Peggy the Pint-Sized Pirate, by Doug Bocaz Larson.

Peggy is a very small girl who wants to become a pirate.

She lives on a desert island in the Wash with a group of pirates who will not let her join in because she’s so small.

After the pirates disappear on a treasure hunt though, it is left to Peggy to rescue them.

Along the way she meets a mermaid, several oysters and a whale, eventually rescuing the pirates from a sea monster mama.

It tells a story which shows however small you are you can make a difference in the world.

The older section of the group will be performing a modern fairytale called Megan and the Golden Key by Geoff Bamber.

The heroine of the story, Megan, falls down a hole and lands in Underland.

It is an untidy place where the world is kept turning by an ancient computer which runs by clockwork.

A recent earthquake has knocked the key out of its hole and the people who run the place, a cross between Wombles and Umpah-Lumpahs, are getting worried.

The confusion is added to when a complicated piece of equipment, a cybertronic activator, creates a James Bond character, only to have two evil secret agents chase him.

Tickets for the show are £6.50 (£5.50 conc). To book call 01205 363108.
