What is the price of adventure? Venture out on the high seas with young Jim Hawkins as he searches for the lost treasure of Captain Flint. A brave band of actors embrace clowning, slapstick, puppetry, and music in the greatest pirate story ever told!
This exciting production, prepared to perform in a variety of spaces, is performed by a company of four professionals, runs approximately 50 minutes (one class period). The performance is fully staged with sets, costumes, music and puppets! A post-show Question and Answer session with the actors may be held, at no additional cost, after each performance. A comprehensive educator study guide, including historical context, synopsis, classroom activities, and additional resources, will be available online in advance of our visit.
