Helped by crew members from the local theatre community, director Kate Rubin is guiding a cast that includes Katie Webber as Jim Hawkins, Christopher Mackie as Long John Silver, Jim Legh as George Badger and UVic’s Associate Dean of Law, Gillian Calder as Dr. Livesey.

Showtimes are 8 p.m. on Dec. 6, 7 and 8, with a 2 p.m. matinee scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 9.
