About: Inside every adolescent brain, 86 billion neurons connect and collide to produce the most frustrating, chaotic and exhilarating changes that will ever happen to us. Brainstorm is a unique theatrical investigation into how teenagers’ brains work, and why they’re designed by evolution to be the way they are. Originally created by Ned Glasier and Emily Lim with Company Three (formerly Islington Community Theatre), in collaboration with neuroscientists Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore and Dr. Kate Mills, the play is designed to be created and performed by a company of teenagers, drawing directly on their own personal experiences. This production is written by Grand Junction High School Performing Arts students, and tells their unique stories and experiences.

About: Based on the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, this new adaptation of Treasure Island is a breathtaking yarn of piracy on the high seas. It begins at an inn on the Devon coast of England in 1775 where young Jim Hawkins longs for adventure. Soon he’s searching for a chest full of gold and fighting off the most infamous pirates of all time, including Black Dog, Anne Bonney, and the foulest of them all, Blind Pew. At the center of it all is Long John Silver, perhaps the most famous hero-villain of all time.
