Kootenay homeschoolers bring Treasure Island to the stage

The show opens Thursday at the Covenant Church. Come out and support Nelson’s homeschooling community.



Kootenay Home Educators are excited to present the Robert Louis Stevenson classic, Treasure Island, a musical theatre performance directed by Allison Girvan opening this Thursday in Nelson.

Treasure Island is an adventurous tale of piracy on the high seas, including a charismatic Nelson based cast of home learners from age four to 16. Beginning in England in 1775, the story is an unforgettable tale of treachery and mayhem featuring a host of legendary swashbucklers.

Key characters include Jim Hawkins, a 14 year old boy at the center of it all who longs for adventure, and the infamous Long John Silver, perhaps the most famous hero-villain of all time. Prepare to be dazzled by a bold musical score, costumed pirates, villagers and mice.

The performance will include three showings at the Covenant Church (702 Stanley Street) on Thursday, April 4, Friday, April 5 and Saturday April 6. All three showings will begin at 4 p.m. Admission is by donation.

Treasure Island is a classic adventure that will win the hearts of all who have ever longed for treasure and adventure. Come out and support Nelson’s homeschooling community.
