Outcry Youth Theatre Presents Treasure Island

Submitted by on January 18, 2018 – 9:36 pmNo Comment


Treasure Island - Outcry Theatre - North Texas Kids

Will McDonald as Jim Hawkins / Logan Beutel as Long John Silver

Outcry Youth Theatre brings Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic adventure Treasure Island to new audiences in this stage adaptation by Ken Ludwig. At the center of this stunning yarn of piracy on the tropical seas 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.

Extensive fight choreography and authentic sea shanties transform the characters into bloodthirsty pirates. The excitement includes a twelve person fight with eight swords — all taking place inside the space of a black box theatre.

While audiences will relish the adventure, it is the relationship between Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver that attracted director Becca Johnson-Spinos to this particular adaptation. “The heart of the show is their bond. A good boy learns to become a great man from one of most infamous pirates of all time. There is a depth to the characters in this adaptation that spoke to me.”

Whether your interest is in a fast moving, fun, treasure hunt or the evolution of Jim and Long John Silver’s complex relationship, grab your matey, and set sail for the incredible journey that is Outcry Youth Theatre’s Treasure Island.
