The actors tried their hardest, but the play would have been better with more dialog and a few less songs.

“Who doesn’t love Gilligan’s Island?” asks MMT artistic director Steven Meerdink. “Whether you grew up with the show, or whether you discovered it during reruns, Gilligan’s Island is firmly rooted in our popular culture.  Certainly the show was written to entertain, but at the heart of the story is the idea that these seven people from very different walks of life must learn to cooperate with each other to survive. From that we get both the humor and the heart of this tale.”

Gilligan’s Island: The Musical first workshopped in Los Angeles in 1989 and the show debuted in Flat Rock, North Carolina in 1992. From there it went to Chicago, San Diego, and Thousand Oaks, and has subsequently been seen in multiple regional productions. An independently produced national tour traveled the country in 2009, playing to sold-out houses.
