Treasure Island. Book, Music and Lyrics by Paul Deiss. Based on the Classic Novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. Set
sail with young Jim Hawkins aboard the Hispaniola for the mysterious
Treasure Island, a tiny spot in the ocean believed to conceal the
greatest of fortunes. On his swashbuckling adventures, Jim encounters
the most legendary buccaneers in all of children's literature: the salty
Billy Bones, the blind rogue Pew, the marooned Ben Gunn and the
captivating Long John Silver. Generations of children have been thrilled
by this rollicking tale of intrigue, piracy, and a young boy who must
learn the value of honor and decency from the most unlikely teachers.
Our merry musical adaptation leaves out the rum-soaked violence of the
book in favor of the fun, the action, and the moral foundation of this
timeless classic.Grades 2 - 8 Family Ties, History, Language Arts, Literary Classic, Music, Reading.
