The “tiny ship” is about to depart for a “3 hour tour” to Gilligan’s Island!  The show opens on April 30th and tickets are selling fast!  Don’t be left out…get your tickets soon and join us for a trip to the busiest deserted island in the Pacific!

Here’s some Gilligan’s Island trivia to get you in the mood:

  • Jerry Van Dyke was originally offered the role of Gilligan but turned it down.  He instead chose to star in “My Mother the Car”.
  • John Williams, the legendary composer (Star Wars, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark) also composed the incidental music for the series.
  • The famous theme song for the show, entitled “The Ballad of Gilligan’s Island”, was written by Sherwood Schwartz and George Wyle.  Schwartz was a proponent of setting up the story of the series with show theme songs.  He replicated this process with “The Brady Bunch”.
