The classic pirate-adventure tale comes to new life in NOMA’s expanded Besthoff Sculpture Garden! This world-premiere comic adaptation, penned by NOLA Project founders Allegra, Bartelle, and Wallace – and inspired by the garden's beautiful waterfront amphitheater – will blend story with sea shanties as we follow Long John Silver and his crew to Skull Island on a search for the notorious Captain Flint's buried treasure. A 21st-century update to the epic adventure novel, TREASURE ISLAND is sure to enamor boys, girls, young, old, and is certain bring out the inner-pirate in every New Orleanian.

All seating is bring-your-own. Food trucks will be available at all performances as well as a fully-stocked bar. No outside food or drink is allowed inside the Sculpture Garden other than food-truck and NOMA-bar items. This production will be staged in one location: The pine grove located toward the front of the garden.


Rain Plan: For productions canceled due to inclement weather, we will notify all ticketed patrons no later than 4:30pm. Patrons will then receive instructions via email on how they may reschedule their tickets for another performance or request a refund. All ticket purchases for any production that is rained-out mid performance are final.

This production is supported in part by a grant from the New Orleans Theatre Association (NOTA).
