Captain Monty Takes the Plunge

11:30 AM - 11:50 AM

Captain Monty Takes the Plunge

Monty the Malodorous is a daring pirate. He is brave. He is bold. He is feared by all who sail the six or seven seas. But Monty has a secret: he can’t swim. He never goes into the ocean and never takes a bath — not even for Meg, the mermaid with whom he is head over boot heels in love. Until one day, when Meg’s life is put into peril and Monty is the only one who can jump into the ocean to save her. Can Monty’s love conquer his fear?
