Footlighters Presents Treasure Island

Treasure Island
April 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 May 3, 4, 5



Footlighters Theater is proud to announce the opening of their production of Treasure Island by award winning playwright Ken Ludwig.

Based on the masterful adventure novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island is a stunning yarn of piracy on the tropical seas. It begins at an inn on the Devon coast of England in 1775 and quickly becomes an unforgettable tale of treachery and mayhem featuring a host of legendary swashbucklers including the dangerous Billy Bones, the sinister two-timing Israel Hands, and the brassy woman pirate Anne Bonney, and the hideous form of evil incarnate, Blind Pew. At the center of it all are Jim Hawkins, a 14-year-old boy who longs for adventure, and the infamous Long John Silver, who is a complex study of good and evil, perhaps the most famous hero-villain of all time. Silver is an unscrupulous buccaneer-rogue whose greedy quest for gold, coupled with his affection for Jim, cannot help but win the heart of every soul who has ever longed for romance, treasure and adventure. Treasure Island is the answer to every adventure-starved person’s prayers: a racy, pacy, tough-as-old-boots adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling classic! A great time for the whole family – audience members of all ages will love the action packed production!

Shows are April 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 May 3, 4, 5 8:00 PM and April 22, 29 at 2:00 PM Tickets are $12 for general admission.
