Betsy Gunn in “Treasure Island”

Posted on: September 3, 2012

Sydney auditioned for a part in the Children’s Theatre of Knoxville’s “Treasure Island” and was so blessed to receive the role, Betsy Gunn (aka Ben Gunn). It was a great script, written by the director Zack Allen, keeping true to the original book but changing a few things to make it into a child’s adventure and a few female parts. It was simply delightful. I love the story and have a new appreciation for Treasure Island  by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson.

Sydney’s role was fun. She played the young chef marooned on Skeleton Isle for serving “moldy mutton” to the now deceased Captain Flint.

Betsy Gunn sneaking around the crates on her isolated Island excited that people are finally on it but are they pirates or friends?

The cast of Treasure Island. Great Job, cast!

Great job, Sydney and cast of Treasure Island.
