"FUN TO BE HAD IN THIS REGIONAL PREMIERE"
Carol Cling of the Las Vegas Review Journal said our production of Treasure Island is fun, as well as "swashbuckling, sword-chasing, [and] music filled." Brian Passey of The Spectrum agreed, calling the family adventure "grand and entertaining." Come, sail the high seas with us in search of buried treasured--and see for yourself what all the excitement is about.

HOW DO YOU BRING A CLASSIC TO THE STAGE?
How do you bring a monumental (and famous) piece of literature to the stage, without losing any of the adventure and life-changing decisions the characters must make? Answer: the artistic staff, led by the director, make hundreds of decisions about every little part of the play, including how pirates dress, move, and act.
