Local Teens Star in Treasure Island

Tehachapi Community Theatre

Tehachapi Community Theatre's summer show for kids, performed by more than 20 Tehachapi teens, opens at the BeeKay Theatre on July 18 for six performances with Long John Silver, Jim Hawkins and the whole pirate gang of "Treasure Island".

Directed by Karl Schuck, this Robert Louis Stevenson classic adventure tale is suitable for children of ages 5 and up. The story is carried by high energy performances, but nothing too scary for young children. "Our intention is to really celebrate the fun of free play, as children do it, with each viewer's imagination engaged throughout the show," Schuck noted.

All performances are at the BeeKay Theatre and tickets are $10, available at Johnny's Take n' Bake, Treasure Trove and at Tehachapi Furniture. For more information and to buy tickets online visit http://tctonstage.com/ .

Also contributing are Daniella Hernandez, as assistant director; Jonathan Hall, lighting and fight choreography; Elmer Acevedo, stage manager; and Emily Marin, costumer.

Among the cast are Samantha Cook as Squire Trelawny; Fallan Bock as Captain Smollett; Taylor Shumway as Dr. Livesey; Tristan Bock as Long John Silver; and Kaylee Winn as Jim Hawkins.

Cast members also include Robin Doser, Reagan Gaines, Kay-Lee Howell, Rihana Medina, Kristen Roghair, Ricky Peregrina, Joe Budoni, Destiny Bustos, Annette Hertz, Kennedy Carr, Benjamin Bartel, Megan Fisher, Emily Marin, Nicholas Woodworth, Alexie Adams and Jaimie Moser.
