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.
