Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Avast, ye lubbers! There be pirates and treasure ahead… Prepare to go on the greatest pirate adventure of all time and set sail for Treasure Island! Come aboard the fabled sailing ship Hispaniola with young Jim Hawkins as he and the crew seek the lost treasure of Captain Flint with only a scrawled map to guide them. But beware, for there’s mutiny aboard as well, with the cunning and roguish Long John Silver ready to kill all who stand between him and the buried booty awaiting them on the isle. Immerse yourself with the crashing roar of the high seas, the roar of cannon fire, swashbuckling cutlasses and feats of derring-do as only Resounding can deliver.
ROB MCCLURE (LONG JOHN SILVER) comes directly from playing the title role in the Broadway production of Mrs. Doubtfire which is on hiatus but will return when curtains rise again in NYC. He received Tony, Drama League, Astaire, and Outer Critics Circle nominations and won Theatre World and Clive Barnes awards for his performance in the title role of Chaplin: The Musical. Rob’s other Broadway credits include Adam Maitland in Beetlejuice, Nick Bottom in Something Rotten!, Tim in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Noises Off, Jack Singer in Honeymoon In Vegas, I'm Not Rappaport, and the roles of Princeton and Rod in Avenue Q.

He delighted 92nd Street Y audiences in Kathleen Marshall’s salute to MGM musicals Going Hollywood and similarly charmed crowds at New York City Center Encores! in Where’s Charley? and Irma La Douce. Regionally, he appeared in the world premiere of Ken Ludwig’s Comedy Of Tenors and The Game’s Afoot both at the Cleveland Playhouse and Robert and Willie Reale’s Johnny Baseball at the American Repertory Theatre.
