Treasure Island Youth Theatre Workshop

Treasure Island Youth Theatre Workshop

Children ages 7-10 are invited to join Kathleen O'Mara for a winter theatre workshop, culminating with performances of Treasure Island on March 7 & 8. 

Sixteen-year-old Jim Hawkins' adventure begins when Billy Bones, the old sea-dog captain, appears one morning in the Admiral Benbow Inn. Billy Bones admits to Jim he was Flint the pirate's first mate and that he holds Flint's map that shows where his treasure is hidden. Bill's got the shakes because the rest of Flint's crew is coming for him. Jim takes the map, eludes the pirates, and sets his course for adventure. Together with Doctor Livesay and Squire Trelawney, they quickly decide to outfit a ship—the Hispaniola—and travel the sea to hunt that treasure. Aboard the ship, Jim meets Long John Silver, who befriends him. But Jim quickly learns who Long John really is and what his plans are. Once the Hispaniola anchors off the coast of Treasure Island the pirates turn on Jim and his companions. Aided by Ben Gunn, the wild and half-insane maroon, Jim takes on the responsibility to save the ship and his shipmates and to secure that treasure.
