  • June 20-24 at the LCC Outdoor Amphitheatre: “Treasure Island,” by L. Don Swartz, based on the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, directed by Dr. John Lennox. This adaptation sticks to the heart of the novel, capturing on stage all the drama and excitement of this beloved classic.

He and his friends set sail to recover the treasure and come up against the gnarly band of pirates led by Long John Silver.
