Treasure Island: Classic high-seas tale takes the stage for one weekend only
2010-05-04 · By Editor
This weekend, May 7-9, Long Beach Shakespeare Company presents classic tale of Treasure Island at the Expo Building.
LBSC’s version of Treasure Island has the villainous Long John Silver enlisting the aid of female pirates to help him get to “Treasure Island” and the infamous chest of gold buried there. With the help of young Jim Hawkins, Captain Livesey, Squire Trelawney, and even a very “human-like” parrot, the search turns into lots of fun. There are even Sea Chanties to help set your sails for this high seas adventure!
The Treasure Island presentation is part of LBSC’s six-week After School Program. Modeled after their successful summer drama camp, the Long Beach Shakespeare After School Program encompasses studying theater, acting, Shakespeare history, text and characters; all culminating in a showcase presentation. The theater program is designed to promote literacy and theater education in a fun and entertaining manner.
Treasure Island takes the stage at the Expo Building, 4321 Atlantic Avenue in Bixby Knolls. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. May 7-8 and at 2 p.m. May 8-9. Tickets for Treasure Island cost $10 and can be purchased on the LBSC website.
