SYNOPSIS: Jim Hawkins and his widowed mother run an old inn in Western England. One foggy morning, a pirate on the run ends up at the inn, befriending Jim and pressing into the lad's hand a tattered, old, wrinkled, and torn piece of paper. Suddenly, a band of cut-throat pirates show up at the inn, feverishly searching for what Jim's been given! With the help of his town's squire, Jim realizes he's been given a secret map to a buried treasure of gold and silver. On board the Hispaniola, Jim learns that the crew they hired are not sailors but pirates captained by peg-legged Long John Silver. But Long John Silver and his treasure-stealing pirates are in for an immense surprise! The treasure they think they've found has been stolen by a half-crazed, hilarious hermit. A breathtaking tale told by two hilarious narrators who, at times, become part of the play's fast-moving action! It offers several opportunities for spontaneous audience participation so that your audience becomes a part of the re-telling.

"Fun play to produce. Comments from students and audience it was fun,and they enjoyed it."
By Rodney Jensen - Director - Skyline High School
"When one of my middle school actors said they'd like to do Treasure Island, I chose this adaptation by Dan Niedermeyer. The story is fast-paced and highly theatrical, ideal for a children's theatre production. Our middle school actors enjoyed the sword fighting and chases as much as the audience. I would love to do the production again someday with adult actors to see what new insights they would bring. This is the best children's theatre adaptations of the story I've ever read."
