WHO:  Spreckels Theatre Company
WHAT: "Treasure Island" 
Based on the book by Robert Louis Stevenson 
Adaptation by Ken Ludwig

Yo-ho-ho-ho landlubbers! Come aboard for the special theatrical voyage "Treasure Island," a swashbuckling adventure for the entire family sailing from Spreckels in Rohnert Park.

Featuring a host of legendary scallywags, Ken Ludwig's stage adaptation captures Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island," the legendary pirate tale of treachery, mayhem and the quest for gold and treasure. At the center of the story are two loveable characters - 14-year old Jim Hawkins, who longs for adventure and parental love - and - the infamous, unscrupulous buccaneer-rogue, Long John Silver.

Featuring Jeremy Ivory-Chambers of San Anselmo as Jim Hawkins; Jon Rathjen of Santa Rosa as Long John Silver; and an ensemble cast featuring Anderson Templeton, Chris Schloemp, Brian Abbott, mollie boice, David Crone, Elizabeth Henry, Rusty Thompson, Lyndsey Transue and Matt Witthaus.

This stage production is presented with the new Paradyne projection system, developed by Spreckels Performing Arts Center, combining still images and animations to create multiple backdrop effects - creating a visual aesthetic that's exciting and visually surprising for audiences of the 21st Century.
"Five Stars! Ken Ludwig's new version invests a gripping yarn with a genuinely rough-and-ready buccaneering spirit. It flies the flag for good-old fashioned ensemble story-telling...X marks the spot of a bona fide festive treat!"
