Riverside Children’s Theater presents Treasure Island
March 21, 2015 - May 2, 2015
Told in classic British “panto” style, this hilarious musical version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous novel is loaded with sword fights, talking parrots, and tons of audience participation. The play begins with Jim and his mum, running an inn that’s seen better days. When Billy Bones wanders in, their world is turned upside down. Billy promptly dies from shock at the sight of Long John Silver and his crew who’ve come to get a treasure map from Billy. Long John ends up taking them all out to sea to the place where “X marks the spot”—an island where Long John holds them captive until he finds the treasure. At the end, Jim saves the day with the help of Ben Gunn, a deserted man on the island, and everyone (except Long John) gets what their heart most desires. You’ll want to slap on an eye-patch and pull up the Jolly Roger while you groove along to the snappy music and experience all the excitement of this pirate adventure!
