PORT McNEILL - Missoula Children's Theatre presents adaptation of Treasure Island at Pioneer Theatre

PORT McNEILL — The pirates may have wielded beach balls instead of swords, but Missoula Children’s Theatre’s production of Treasure Island Saturday was  still a swashbuckling tale of discovery, treachery and redemption.

Forty young students took part in the production, which took just six days from auditions to performances at Pioneer Theatre.

Touring actors Katie Northcutt and Caity Johnson of the touring company outfitted and trained the youngsters for the shows.

The production, Missoula’s fifth annual in Port McNeill, was produced by Port McNeill Family Centre and sponsored by the Andrew Mahon Foundation of Vancouver, Coastal Community Credit Union, and by David and Robin Baird.

Sandra Maybie provided accompaniment on piano.
