Synopsis
Young Jim Hawkins and his widowed mother run an old inn in Western England centuries ago. One foggy, dreary morning, an eye-patch-wearing pirate on the run lands up in the inn, befriending Jim and pressing into the lad’s hand a tattered, old, wrinkled and torn piece of paper. Suddenly, unexpectedly, a band of cut-throat pirates show up at the inn!-feverishly searching for what Jim’s been surreptitiously given!
 
With the help of his town’s squire, Jim realizes he’s been given a secret map to a huge buried treasure of gold and silver and pieces of eight! A veritable fortune buried in some unknown location on some unknown island. A treasure the squire and Jim are now determined to find! Onboard the “Hispaniola,” Jim learns that the crew they hired are not sailors but cut-throat pirates captained by peg-legged Long John Silver (a cut-throat pirate who’s been masquerading as the Hispaniola’s” cook!). But Long John Silver and his treasure-stealing pirates are in for an immense surprise! The treasure they think they’ve found has been hijacked! Stolen by a grizzled, half-crazed, hilarious hermit!
 
This interactive version of “TREASURE ISLAND” is a breathtaking tale told by two hilarious narrators who, at times, become part of the play’s fast-moving action! It offers several opportunities for spontaneous audience participation so that your audience becomes a part of the re-telling of this classic tale. Easy-to-stage, “TREASURE ISLAND” sails both cast and audience from the rain-drenched English coast to a steamy tropical jungle on a deserted island. Produced easily and quickly with simple props often moved by the two always-talking, always-amusing narrators and sometimes by the cast themselves, creating first the Admiral Benbow Inn, then the “Hispaniola,” and finally, “Treasure Island” itself.
