Pirates of the Sequim Library

— image credit:

Self-branded the funniest pirate never to sail the seven seas, Seattle actor Cap’n Arrr, played by Won Israel, brought the funny to Sequim Library on June 30.

Children heard songs from Cap’n Arrr’s ship help Isabelle, played by Erica Clark, got to pop cannon balls filled with water, learned a samurai training exercise, and more.

Israel encouraged respect of adults and that even though children are small, they all are special treasures. 

Several children dressed as pirates, and Israel continually promoted safety when children got too excited with their plastic swords.

His humor remained light, with physical comedy and tongue-in-cheek one-liners such as naming his pirate ship “Friend.”

His was the second performance for the Summer Reading Program that runs through the summer with support from the Sequim Friends of the Library.

The next two events are Valentine’s Pigs, today, Wednesday, July 7, and Mad Science on Wednesday, July 14.

Each starts at 10:30 a.m. behind the library at 630 N. Sequim Ave. If there is inclement weather, programs are held at Sequim Middle School, 301 W. Hendrickson Road.
