About the show

A musical reimagining of Robert Louis Stevenson’s "Treasure Island." More…

Set in the mid 18th Century, we follow young Jim Hawkins from poverty stricken Bristol, England, all the way to the Caribbean Islands as he embarks on a journey that will change his life forever. A boy that dreamt of adventure upon the sea will be faced with grave choices, betrayal and lurking danger that will, in turn, make him dream only of returning home. The play examines the parallel desires of Jim and the infamous John Silver and the paths they are forced to take.
