Patrick Carnes, Julie Pergrem and Joshua Steele as the Hewells and Gilligan
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”.
