Seeley Swan Pathfinder
Seeley Lake, Montana
The Seeley-Swan High School/Missoula Children's Theater production of TREASURE ISLAND will be this Saturday, April 15, at 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. in the Seeley-Swan old gym. Ticket prices are $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for children and senior citizens.
TREASURE ISLAND is a new collaboration between Jim Caron and Michael McGill. In rewriting the famous novel by Robert Louis Stevenson they faced a significant challenge in adapting a story based on greed, murder, and drinking rum into a clever and humorous children's musical suitable for students from the kindergarten through the twelfth grade. The scenery is the most complicated and extensive ever done in Seeley Lake because three locations are involved. The audience will see a New England coast, a ship and a tropical island.
Come and see Ely Sheets as Jim Hawkins, Autumn Biggins as Davy Letterman, Mary Yiengst as Rosie Red, Becky Farrar as Whitey, Jessie Diamond as Big ole Blue, Christina Pulici as Goldie the Hun, and Danielle Drew as Captain Patches.
