The Striking Viking Story Pirates present at least one new story each week by a New Yorker under the age of 12. Each show features a live interview with the child author by Hilde Hildegard and Rolo Vincent, the Viking and Pirate puppets who M.C. the show.
The Striking Viking Story Pirates, often described as "Schoolhouse Rock meets Monty Python," take hilarious stories written by kids all over the world and faithfully adapt them into a vaudeville-style musical. The stories they collect range from a few words scrawled out by first-graders barely able to spell, to complex mini-novellas typed and illustrated by sixth graders. The stories are printed in the program "as the kids wrote them", so the audience can see how closely they have been adapted by the ensemble of professional actors.
