Set sail with young Jim Hawkins aboard the Hispaniola for the mysterious Treasure Island, a tiny spot in the ocean believed to conceal the greatest of fortunes. On his swashbuckling adventures, Jim encounters the most legendary buccaneers in all of children’s literature: the salty Billy Bones, the blind rogue Pew, the marooned Ben Gunn and the captivating Long John Silver. Generations of children have been thrilled by this rollicking tale of intrigue, piracy, and a young boy who must learn the value of honor and decency from the most unlikely teachers. Our merry musical adaptation leaves out the rum-soaked violence of the book in favor of the fun, the action, and the moral foundation of this timeless classic.
