Ahoy, pirate lovers! Ye scalawags have another chance to live out yer mutinous pirate passions as Delaware Theatre Company (DTC) and First State Children's Theater (FSCT) team up for Treasure Island.
Adapted for the stage by Linus Speary from the story by Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island is the unforgettable tale of young Jim Hawkins, son of an innkeeper in 18th Century England. Hawkins finds himself on a race across the high seas with a band of mutineers in search of a secret buried treasure. Pirates, peril, and pieces of eight await all who seek the lost bounty of Captain Flint.
Michael Boudewyns, Artistic Director of FSCT, describes Treasure Island as "possibly the best pirate story ever written, [and] a perfect example of what the First State Children's Theater is committed to."
In addition to the public performances, School-Time performances are scheduled for 10:00 AM on Wednesday, November 8; Thursday, November 9; Monday, November 13; and Tuesday, November 14.
This action-filled play is best enjoyed by ages 6 and up.
