Beginning this Tuesday, November 22, Book-It Repertory Theatre will premiere their production of Treasure Island. Directed by Corey McDaniel, Treasure Island explores the swashbuckling antics of Long John Silver—one of literature’s most distinguished villains—and the young Jim Hawkins. From Book-It:
Throughout the thrilling adventure, Hawkins learns hard lessons about friendship, loyalty, courage, and honor as well as the blurred line between good and evil.
