Dramatized by Aurand Harris. An exciting theatrical adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's novel. 1 woman, 12 men (some roles may be doubled), in 5 scenes or 3 suggested sets. 18th century English costumes.
Along with young Jim Hawkins, the audience sails abroad the HMS Hispanola for a daring adventure on Treasure Island. In a conflict between good and evil, Jim courageously faces danger, learns that evil can masquerade as "good," and matures from a boy into manhood. All of Stevenson's famous characters are aboard -- the good doctor and the Squire, the sinister Blind Pew, the marooned Ben Gunn, the infamous Long John Silver, and a colorful crew of buccaneers. Young audiences will thrill to the lightning adventure, exotic settings, sea chanteys, and the salty pirate dialogue that makes this new dramatization of Jim Hawkins' adventures irresistible in the hands of Aurand Harris, America's master playwright for young people.
