Treasure Island
By Ken Ludwig, adapted from the novel by R.L. Stevenson
Directed by Gregory Boyd
Hubbard Stage
May 18 - June 17, 2006 (Press opening scheduled for Wednesday, May 23)

Treasure Island is the tale of young Jim Hawkins, the son of an innkeeper in 18th century England, who matches wits with a mob of pirates to obtain a secret treasure. Taking a highly sought-after map in hand, the eager Hawkins sets off on a series of adventures in search of Treasure Island. With heart-pounding sword fights, edge-of-your-seat rescues and cutthroat mutiny on the high seas, Treasure Island is an adventure for the whole family. Adaptor Ken Ludwig is author of the Alley's recent world premiere productions of Be My Baby and Leading Ladies, as well as the Broadway hits Lend Me a Tenor and Crazy for You. Treasure Island will feature spectacular designs by a team of theatrical luminaries, including scenic designer Eugene Lee (Broadway's Wicked), costume designer Constance Hoffman (Alley's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), lighting designer Howell Binkley (Broadway's Jersey Boys and Steel Magnolias) and sound designer John Gromada (Broadway's Rabbit Hole and A Streetcar Named Desire).

"I couldn't be more excited about working on Treasure Island with Gregory Boyd and everyone at the Alley Theatre. Robert Louis Stevenson concocted the greatest tale of adventure, intrigue and romance ever written, and it's been a joy adapting it for the Alley stage," said Ludwig.
