Swaggerin’ scallywags, boisterous buccaneers, it’s Long John Silver and the gang in a wild and wacky, eye-patched musical starring Portland’s own Captain Bogg & Salty!  In this classic coming of age tale, young Jim Hawkins tracks down pirate treasure with a stolen treasure map.  But along the way, he encounters the menacing Long John Silver and his motley crew of pirates!  

All kids attending are encouraged to dress up like pirates.  Come early to walk the plank and participate in the OCT Pirate Dance Party featuring Greasy Kid Stuff with Belinda and Hova spinning swashbuckling tunes in the lobby before and after all performances 

Based on the book by Robert Louis Stevenson and adapted by Eric Schmiedl, The Ghosts of Treasure Island is directed by Greg Tamblyn.  The play features music composed and performed by Captain Bogg & Salty.  Leif Norby plays Long John Silver and Ryan Stathos plays Jim Hawkins.  Set Design is by Glenn Gauer, Lighting Design by Gene Dent, Sound Design by Rody Ortega, and Costume Design by Margaret Louise Chapman
