Treasure Island

Director – Mitchell Cushman

Starring – Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Jim Hawkins. Randy Hughson as Squire Trelawney, Juan Chioran as Long John Silver, Jamie Mac as Allardyce, Jim Codrington as Captain Smollett and Katelyn  McCulloch as Ben Gunn

Fun for the whole family. Pirates, a parrot, battles, singing, dancing  and the amazing aerial work of Ben Gunn (Katelyn McCulloch). Juan Chioran was pefect as Long John Silver, with just the right blend of piratical evil and soft guy dad underneaith. Jamie Mac did a terrific and very funny bit speaking in a dialect that no one could understand, but might have been Newfoundland?

The kids in the audience loved the whole thing and so did the rest of us.

We have already issued invitations to the grandkids to come see it. You should too.

    I have felt that Stratford has struggled with a kid’s show for the last few years but Nicolas Billon and Mitchell Cushman have got the right tone this year, with a definite nod to Panto and some excellent set design by Douglas Paraschuk.
    The cast chewed the scenery to just the right degree and a particular call out to Katelyn McCulloch, who was an inspired addition to the cast. I also enjoyed Gordon Patrick White’s turn as Black Dog channeling Johnny Depp channeling Keith Richards, in addition to the people mentioned by Cathy.
    Take the kids/grandkids!
