ArtReach's version of Treasure Island is just for kids! The story and many characters remain true to the beloved book. By placing Jim Hawkins in present day, we see the story as his fantasy. This adds fun and imagination to the action while softening some of the rougher aspects of Stevenson's pirates. Every part of ArtReach's version is appropriate for young performers!
Just for Kids: Speeches and vocabulary are appropriate for child performers ages 6 - 14. Lots of Pirate Talk with a glossary in the Teachers Guide.
A Flexible Cast of 30 Students: Easily adapted for a smaller or larger cast. Add as many roles as you like!
Great Parts for Boys and Girls: Who says pirates have to be boys? Not us! Every role in the play can be performed by a boy or girl!
About 45-55 minutes long: Long enough to be a substantial project and short enough to accommodate your teaching schedule.
Easy Costumes and Scenery: Many suggestions on how to create or find what you need to make a great looking production without breaking your budget!
A Musical Soundtrack: Treasure Island has a backing track CD with familiar tunes. Songs are easy for children to learn and perform.
