Auditions for Treasure Island

Location: Chicago, IL

Type: Theater

This bold adaptation features your favorite characters as well as new strong women leads! The sweeping saga respectfully holds to its roots while pushing the story into a vibrant collage of energy, danger and swashbuckling on stage. Actors of all genders from the age of 13-120 are encouraged to step into a lively tale of Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins that inspired Hollywood before anyone ever knew the name of Jack Sparrow.

Not a musical but traditional shanties transition scene to scene. No singing experience required. Directed by Nationally Recognized stage combat instructor (DAI) and licensed Tall Ship Captain Orion Couling. The show features a diverse cast of many age ranges and stays true to character as portrayed in the book.
