Treasure Island, adapted by Joseph George Caruso from the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson will perform March 4th-13th in the Franklin Square Black Box. When this rousing adventure story premiered Off-Broadway, it received unanimous critical acclaim, The New York Times called it an ‘inventive classic.’ Treasure Island is certainly one of the most durable adventure stories of all time, with the villainous Long John Silver following young Jim across the ocean to search out a buried fortune on Treasure Island.

My Name is Rumpelstiltskin adapted by Vera Morris will perform September 9th- 18th in the Franklin Square Black Box. That nasty-tempered wizard Rumpelstiltskin is back in this engaging adaptation. Griselda, a four hundred year old witch, tells Rumpelstiltskin that in order to become the most powerful force in the kingdom, he must possess a child of royal birth. The wizard plots and schemes and spreads the word that Laura, the miller’s daughter, can weave straw into gold. Since the kingdom is bankrupt, she’s whisked off to the palace and ordered to spin and spin. With Rumpelstiltskin’s help she delivers the gold. She has a high fee to pay — her first born child. When Laura marries the prince and produces an heir to the throne, she has twenty-four hours to guess the wizard’s name or lose her child.Auditions for My Name is Rumpelstiltskin will take place on July 12, 13, and callbacks on July 15. Festival will also use these auditions to cast for one youth role for On Golden Pond.
