Ely United Methodist Church is pleased to sponsor “Treasure Island” a community children’s theater production, opening March 20-21, at the Ely Elks Lodge.

The production features more than 40 children, from five different schools and several different faith traditions, performing in the play.

“This musical is a great opportunity for the kids in our community to participate in a large scale play, to learn lines and songs and to see their hard work pay off as they perform the play,” said Suzanne Calhoun, Pastor at Ely United Methodist and director and coordinator of the production.

Several community members are also helping with preparing the children for the play, Megan Van Tassell is directing the music and Jolene Holzfaster is helping with staging.

Admission is by donation only and all proceeds will be donated to Imagine no Malaria, an organization that provides health centers, bed nets and education for malaria stricken regions of the world.

Treasure Island starts Friday, March 20, 2015 at 6:30 pm and Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 5 pm.  Doors will open a half an hour before show time. For more information contact Suzanne Calhoun at 775-293-5113.
