About Pirate School

Pirate School is a one-man, sea-faring vaudeville show that spoofs the Golden Age of Sail and satisfies children’s universal curiosity about the briny buccaneers of yore. Parents and educators especially appreciate the wholesome, inclusive, nonviolent content and pro-social messaging subtly woven throughout his shows.

Mr. David Engel is an actor with years of stage and screen experience which brings an added depth to his clown work. He’s performed major Shakespearean roles (Hamlet, Macbeth, Titus Andronicus) and has appeared in commercials, films, and television.
