SCT featuring "Family Night"

on Saturdays, Sept. 21 & 28

SALEM - Salem Community Theatre is offering special family-friendly pricing for both Saturday evening's performance of "Treasure Island" by Robert Louis Stevenson. Family groups of three or more can enjoy the thrill of live theatre and an exciting adventure tale, for a total package price of only $25 (at least one adult).

As a Saturday-nights-only special price, the theater hopes to attract audiences young and old, and especially new audiences.

Managing Director Gary Kekel said that since this production is such a perfect family-oriented show, it's a great opportunity to expose those people who possibly have never attended a live theater performance to a show at SCT. "Plus, we'd like as many people as possible to see all the improvements we've been making in the building's appearance," he said. "The fact that this is the opening performance of our new 37th season, hopefully these folks and their kids will catch the live theatre bug and come back for more ... and maybe even get involved in some productions!"

The SCT production of "Treasure Island" features not just the classic pirate tale that many have read when they were young, but also some exciting staging and fun acting, complete with plenty of saber-wielding pirates. The story is told through the youthful eyes of Jim Hawkins, as his quest for adventure finds him crossing paths with the likes of Billy Bones, Long John Silver, and Captain Flint.

The production will have its opening night on Friday, and run Friday, Saturday, and Sundays for two weekends through Sept. 29.

For reserved-seat tickets, show times, and more information about the special, Saturday-nights-only offer for Family Nights on Sept. 21 and Sept. 28, call the box office at 330-332-9688.
