TREASURE ISLAND

Genre: Classical, Comedy, Dance, Kids, Musical
Written by Michael Sgouros & Brenda Bell, Directed by Carlo Rivieccio

 This tale about courage, discovery and the voyage everyone must make to find their true self, is enhanced with original music performed by an all-percussion trio. And what pirate musical would be complete without plenty of sword-fighting? The production is filled with funny-bone tickling pirate fights skillfully coordinated by the productions director Carlo Rivieccio.
Prior to each performance, families may participate in an interactive arts workshop. Here the audience discovers how different art forms bring literature to life. Each child gets to create their own treasure chest, discover what is special about themselves and store it away in their chest to take home. Coupled with the show, this two-hour experience adds up to a fun-filled afternoon for the entire family.
