Details provided by Playscripts.com
This adventurous adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel finds young Jim Hawkins as he discovers a treasure map in a dead pirate's sea-chest. Jim is led on an expedition across the ocean to recover a fortune in plundered gold. Fair winds and favorable seas soon give way to mutiny, greed, and the evil machinations of a one-legged scoundrel named Long John Silver. Join Jim on an unforgettable adventure as he fights for his life -- and the lives of his friends -- in this legendary tale of piracy and heroism.
Auditioners should come prepared with a monologue between 30 and 90 seconds in length. We will also be reading selections from the script. If you need to make arrangements to audition early, please send ACT I a message ASAP.
Rehearsals will be at Ladies Fitness on Wednesday evenings 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm and Saturdays at Ladies Fitness from 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm.
