Director’s Notes

Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh Scotland November 13, 1850. Prone to illness and a recurring cough, much of his early childhood was spent isolated at home. Though he wouldn’t learn to read until he was nearly 8 years old, he loved to dictate poetry and stories to his nurse. He wrote compulsively throughout his childhood. These early years were to be the catalyst for a lifelong calling as a storyteller. 

Treasure Island, originally titled The Sea Cook: A Story for Boys, first began to appear in the pages of the Young Folks magazine in 17 weekly installments from October 1, 1881 to January 28, 1882. The story was later republished as the novel Treasure Island and proved to be Stevenson's first financial and critical success. 

Stevenson loaded his pirate tale with a bounty of colorful characters, action and danger all to the delight of young Victorian imaginations. Treasure Island literally defined the elements of classic pirate lore including treasure maps marked with an "X", schoonersthe Black Spot, mysterious tropical islands and the quintessential image of the one-legged pirate. Since its first publication Treasure Island has been translated into multiple languages, adapted into numerous films, stage plays and television specials. Even Walt Disney himself would produce his own film version of the story. He would also use it as inspiration for his Pirates of the Caribbean Disneyland theme park ride, which would eventually grow into its own film franchise. 

As we approached Ken Ludwig’s stage adaptation of this story, we realized it was both an intimate retelling with a very cinematic scale. We wanted to be true to the epic adventure of Robert Louis Stevenson’s original novel, while really heightening the beautiful way Mr. Ludwig captured the relationship between Jim and Long John Silver. We hired composer J Bateman to score the action, giving it an emotional depth as well as a customized, larger than life film quality. Rob Moffat’s vocal arrangements create both a raw folk sentiment and an ethereal choral grandeur. Kacey Udy has created a heroic scenic playground unlike anything we have ever had on our stage. I am infinitely grateful to the amazing crew I have been able to sail with on this journey. The contribution of hundreds of Hale artists has, I believe, resulted in a priceless treasure. 

At the heart of this ultimate pirate adventure, Stevenson crafted the unlikely friendship between Jim Hawkins and the pirate Long John Silver. Though young Jim sails off to discover the riches promised by a stolen map, it is his greater discovery that transforms him forever; In every man lies the potential for good and evil. Which of these he becomes depends upon the treasure he chooses to pursue. 

— Dave Tinney
 

Over the Sea to Skye

Scottish folk tune. Lyric by Robert Louis Stevenson

Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Mull was astern, Rum on the port,
Eigg on the starboard bow;
Glory of youth glowed in his soul:
Where is that glory now?

Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
Mountains of rain and sun,
All that was good, all that was fair,
All that was me is gone.

Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Give me again all that was there,
Give me the sun that shone!
Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
Give me the lad that’s gone!

Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.
