FAQ

Q. When and where do the Story Pirates perform? 
A. We perform throughout the year in the LA area as well as across the country. We also have an NYC branch.

Q. Is being a Story Pirate a paid position?
A. Yes, BUT it's not very much. You should only do Story Pirates because it's something you enjoy doing.  If you're doing it for financial reasons, you will be disappointed.

Q. Is training paid?
A. No, however, once you're trained as a Story Pirate we work entirely around your schedule.  You only get cast in shows for which you've told us you're available.
