THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Intermediate Children’s Theatre group will present four performances of Some Digging Required, an original play written by Jason Whetten. The cast of twenty-nine children, all between the ages of 11 and 14, will perform October 1–4, 2008, in the Gherald L.

The play is based on the book Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson, and is directed by Penny Whetten. “We are very excited to present this original theatrical piece to the community. The kids are practicing very hard, and it should be a lot of fun to watch,” says Whetten.
