Story Pirates Changemakers Benefit

Story Pirates is a media company founded in 2004 to celebrate the words and ideas of kids. It all started in a Harlem school auditorium when a group of friends put on an absurdist sketch comedy show based on stories written by kids. Since then, we’ve launched a hit radio show, the #1 podcast for kids and families, a live tour which performs from coast to coast, and a critically acclaimed middle-grade book series from Random House. Our first book, “Stuck in the Stone Age,” debuted in the Spring of 2018, and our second book, “Digging up Danger,” was released January, 2019. Our debut album, “Nothing Is Impossible,” won the Family Choice Award and the National Parenting Product Award.

The Story Pirates are proud to be a leading advocate for arts education. Through Story Pirates Changemakers, our partner non-profit, the Pirates provide life-changing literacy and creative writing programs in New York and Los Angeles to thousands of kids in Title I schools and homeless shelters.

You can find the Story Pirates podcast on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen.

The Earth-gina Monologues

It's Earth Day, and what better way to celebrate our misunderstood planet than to hear its experiences first hand in the style of The Vagina Monologues?! However, instead of personal stories dealing with the feminine experience, The Earth-gina Monologues has some of UCB's finest talent performing monologues as Earth, each focusing on a specific aspect of the "terrestrial experience." Man has oppressed land and sea for too long – it's time to empower our planet!
