At the center of are Jim Hawkins, a boy who longs for adventure, and the infamous Long John Silver, who is a complex study of good and evil.

The cast features Jimmy Betts as Jim Hawkins, Aaron Campbell as Long John Silver, and Zane Sade, Kirk Koczanowski, Brandt Roberts, Bryson David Hoff, Heather Michele Lawler, Felicia Basanavicius, Mitchell Ferguson, Andrew Gehrlein and Mitch Brauer. “Treasure Island” is directed by Shawnee’s producing artistic director, Kevin Guthridge.
