Owl Theatre to present Treasure Island
Rainy River High School’s OWL THEATRE is happy to present Treasure Island, a dramatization of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of pirates and buried gold.
Jim Hawkins is a young boy who lives at his mother’s inn, the Admiral Benbow, near Bristol, England, in the eighteenth century. An old sea captain named Billy Bones dies in the inn after being presented with a black spot, or the official pirate death penalty but he gives Jim a secret treasure map before he dies. Jim, his mother, cousin, Dr. Livesey and Captain Smollett outfit a ship, the Hispaniola, to go searching for treasure. However, the crew turns out to be pirates who take Jim and his friends hostage. Jim escapes and meets Belle Gunn, a pirate who has been marooned on the island for years. Together they make a plan to get rid of the pirates and share the treasure.
The production will run Thursday, April 24 starting at 7:00 pm and Friday, April 25 at 6:30 pm. Tickets are available at Rainy River High School, Beaver Mills Market, and Rainy River Drugs.
The production features some energetic singing and acting. Children will enjoy the fast-paced nature of the play and the comedic antics of some of the characters. The play is suitable for all audiences.
