The shipwreck was only the beginning.

This classic adventure comes to life in a magical new musical tale.  Join the Swiss Family Robinson as they survive a stormy shipwreck only to be left to fend for themselves on an exotic tropical island.  Together, they bravely face the mysteries and perils of their new home but soon discover they are not alone.  French sailors are in hot pursuit, and wait, do you hear drums? Jungle drums?  Filled with hilarious hijinks, the hope of rescue and the bloom of romance, this fresh new musical tells a tale of how the winds of fate can lead you to find your destiny.
