Youth Theatre Northwest (YTN) in Mercer Island is kicking off its 33rd School Season by bringing back one of its most popular shows of all time, the swashbuckling adventure “Treasure Island.”
The show continues for two more weekends in November, with performances Friday and Saturday evenings at 7 p.m. (Nov. 11-12 and Nov. 18-19) and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. (Nov. 12-13 and Nov. 19-20).
“Treasure Island” is an epic journey to the searfaring days when pirates roamed the open oceans in search of treasure. Based on the classic novel by Robert Luis Stevenson and adapted by former YTN Artistic Director Tina LaPlant, “Treasure Island” follows in the footsteps of Jim Hawkins as he pursues the clues on a dusty old map to the legendary Treasure Island. Jim can trust no one, and every step may be his last, with the pirate Long John Silver on his trail.
Directed by Zoe Wilson, “Treasure Island” performs Nov. 4-20 at the Parish Hall Theatre, located at 4400 86th Ave. SE in Mercer Island.
The cast of “Treasure Island” features some of Youth Theatre’s brightest talent. The cast of 25 actors (ages 7-17) are from Mercer Island, Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Issaquah and Newcastle.
“Treasure Island” is best for ages 6 and up. Ticket prices are $13-$17, and may be purchased at the performance or in advance by visiting www.YouthTheatre.org or calling 206-232-4145, ext. 109.
YTN continues its School Season with a radio drama performance of “War of the Worlds,” performing Dec. 2–4. For a full Season line-up, visit www.YouthTheatre.org.
