Treasure Island
July 17, 2019 >> August 18, 2019

“Fifteen men on the Dead Man’s Chest Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”

This classic coming-of-age tale follows Jane Hawkins, an orphan who longs for adventure, as she is swept up on a wild hunt for buried treasure with a ruthless band of buccaneers. Along the way, Jane’s bravery, morality, and sense of self are put to the test as she learns about her past and the path she wants to follow.

Synetic’s athletic artists will bring their signature brand of bold theatricality to sword fights and high-seas battles with notorious pirates in a daring and modern adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s tale of “buccaneers and buried gold.”

All ages are welcome!


To redeem: Choose a student ticket at checkout and enter the promo code as “UNDER5” “AGE6, “AGE7” “AGE8” etc.

This production is most recommended for ages 5 & up due to realistic fight choreography and mentions of violence, swashbuckling pirates, grand adventure, and dirty scoundrels!
