Communications Staff

The Oberlin Summer Theater Festival (OSTF) opened its seventh season July 3 with a stage adaptation of the classic novel Treasure Island. The story follows 14-year-old Jim Hawkins (Colin Wulff ’14) who discovers a treasure map that launches him into an unforgettable voyage of treachery and mayhem that features a host of swashbucklers, including the infamous peg-legged and parrotted Long John Silver (Neil Thackaberry).

Treasure Island, which runs through August 8, is one of three plays being performed as part of the 2015 OSTF season. William Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well runs July 10 through August 8, and Crumbs from the Table of Joy by Lynn Nottage runs July 17 through August 7. Treasure Island and Crumbs from the Table of Joy are recommended for age 6 and older, and All’s Well That Ends Well is recommended for age 10 and older.

All plays are being performed at Hall Auditorium. Tickets are free and available at the door; however, reservations are recommended. More information can be found on the News Center.
