Ahoy, mateys! Before you set sail with the Playhouse’s production of Ken Ludwig's Treasure Island, get your sea legs and learn the finer points of swashbuckling. In this one-hour, multigenerational workshop, kids and parents (or grandparents!) alike will learn how to walk, talk and fight like a pirate by using a combination of stage combat and acting techniques.
Pirate Training Workshops take place before 4 p.m. Saturday matinee performances. Cost does not include a ticket to the show. A parent or guardian may join their child for the workshop, but an adult is not necessary for kids to participate. Space is limited so reserve now or WALK THE PLANK!
The Playhouse continues its partnership with Joseph-Beth Booksellers with a deep dive into the literary classic Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. Participants are invited to attend two special discussion events, detailed below. Events take place at the Joseph-Beth Booksellers’ Rookwood location. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required by calling the Box Office at 513-421-3888.
April 23, 7 p.m.
At the first discussion we’ll talk about the book itself: the plot and characters, the overarching themes, how you might imagine it translates to a theatrical setting and even the challenges you see in adapting the story.
May 14, 7 p.m.
Our second discussion will take place after you’ve seen the play to discuss what excited and surprised you, and to learn from a member of the production team how they approached the show.
