Arrghh! There be pirates aboard the stage of the Huntington Beach Playhouse , where Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel "Treasure Island" is getting the theatrical treatment. This stage version, adapted by popular comedy playwright Ken Ludwig ("Lend Me a Tenor," "Moon Over Buffalo"), clearly is targeted toward younger audiences, judging by the way director Bob May loosens the reins on actors playing several of the more colorful characters. Subtlety has no role in this drama.

Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) had been swallowed by the Kraken, the evil sea monster dispatched by Davy Jones himself.
