The Geffen Playhouse Story Pirates and Penguin Young Readers Group will team up to kick-off the Geffen Playhouse Saturday Scene season with Theodore Boone and the Thrill of Rights!, November 5 at 11am.

In this interactive legal comedy based on the book by John Grisham, kids from the audience join professional actors on stage to become the jury, witnesses, and lawyers in a high-stakes trial. The primary suspect is 12-year-old Theo Boone, who is on trial for stealing the Bill of Rights. With a signed letter of permission from his parents, Theo decides that the best lawyer to try his case is himself.

The Geffen Playhouse began its Story Pirates partnership in 2009 as a way to expand the resources of the theater's current in-school initiatives. Story Pirates, which was originally founded in New York in 2003, is a nationally recognized arts and literacy organization, working to engage students in under-resourced public schools by showing them that their ideas, words, and stories are important.
