Gilligan's Island: The Musical

is a family-friendly stage musical version of the ever-popular and iconic 60‘s TV comedy show "Gilligan's Island"

which has aired continuously since 1964 and is one of the rare TV properties to rate equally well in every demographic group.

The show’s theme song was voted #1 all-time favorite and it is reported that the lyrics are more familiar than those of the US national anthem.

This musical version is true to the characters, situations and broad humor of the original. It does not require familiarity with the TV show to be appreciated.

Shipwrecked on a remote Pacific island, the seven castaways build huts and begin to explore their surroundings.

They discover strange hieroglyphics in a spooky cave, which speak of an ancient legend.

The weather gets rough, Gilligan foils the best-laid of the castaway’s rescue plans........ romance develops .....

The castaways have an out-of-this-world encounter...... It’s fun, wacky and entertaining with 18 original, tuneful and memorable songs.
