*Note: Treasure Island Bistro replaced the previously scheduled production of The Pirate Mermaid Play

Ten year-old Jimena is a smart and happy kid who devours adventure stories. But when an ambulance takes her mom to the hospital one day, Jimena is both really sad and really scared. What will happen to her if mom doesn’t get better? Before Jimena can get too afraid, mom’s friends sweep her up and bring her to the restaurant where they work — Treasure Island Bistro. While the restaurant is closed, they’ve figured out a novel way to keep Jimena busy and distracted all afternoon. They’re going to put on a play about the book that inspired their restaurant: Treasure Island. But Jimena’s not just watching the play, she’s in the play, starring as young Jim Hawkins, who finds a map with an X that marks the spot where pirates once buried their treasure. And so begins an adventure that will introduce Jim to the pirate Long Jane Silver and will teach both Jim and Jimena how to be brave and how to judge who’s good and who’s a pirate.
