Local students perform in Treasure Island

Set sail for a piratical adventure with Long John Silver and his crew in the original play, “Treasure Island” at the Hershey Gardens on Friday, July 27. The show is at noon in the Children’s Garden amphitheater. This performance is the culmination of a two- week theater camp coordinated by the Hershey Area Playhouse and the Hershey Gardens. Admission to the show is included with your regular Gardens admission or membership.

Jude Petersen performs as Billy Bones in “Treasure Island.”


Thirty children, from 4th through 8th grade, have worked on developing character, learning stage combat, and telling this beloved story to present this fully produced, fully costumed production. The Hershey Area Playhouse and Hershey Gardens are in the 6th year of their partnership to bring students together to perform original retellings of classic tales.
