Treasure Island: A Play in 4 Acts by Jules Eckert Goodman (1876 - 1962).

Arrgh and Shiver Me Timbers! Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver! This is Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale as made into a play for The Punch and Judy Theatre Company in 1915. ( ToddHW)
The project is completed. All audio files can be found on our catalog page at http://librivox.org/treasure-island-a-play-in-4-acts-by-jules-eckert-goodman/

Volunteers outside the USA: Jules Goodman died in 1962. His work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, or Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1954).
  • Casting is gender neutral. (And species neutral too, given that there is a role for a parrot!)

    1. Is there a deadline?
      We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    2. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
      To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/treasureislandpl00goodiala
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

      If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.



      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I'd love to read Jim, unless you'd rather have a boy, in which case I'll read his mother :D
Thanks!

Please pick a role - hard to assign anything since some are long and some are very short.

Thanks, Todd

Gender and species neutral - so you can be Jim and Silver respectively.

Thanks, Todd

If you are not requiring gender-specific casting, may I claim Captain Smollett?

Hmm, I would have love to do Silver, but as he is taken, I think I'll go with dr. Livesey

:thumbs: Short question, and this has nothing to do with my claim, but I noticed "captain" in act 1. Which captain is that? Oh, and happy new year! I am only two hours away;)

I added a note in the MW - the "Captain" in the first act of the script is Bill Bones.

Thanks, Todd

I will be cheeky and ask for both Bill Bones and the parrot as well - I'll make the parrot sound different! ;)

May I be Pew, the sinister blind pirate? I can make myself sound like a nasty piece of work.
