From the former writers and producers of Adventures in Odyssey comes an entirely new audio adventure: Under Drake’s Flag.

Ned fights off a shark attack, survives a shipwreck, engages in fierce battles on sea and land, and comes face to face with the Spanish Inquisition. Experience the swashbuckling tale that pits faith against fear, and helps Ned grow from a boy into a man. Live the Adventure® and board The Golden Hinde for an epic quest of courage on the high seas!
This movie-quality audio theater—recorded in London—features a cast of stellar actors, including acclaimed British actor Brian Blessed, state-of-the art sound design from award-winner Mark Drury (The Chronicles of Narnia audio series), and a stunning music score composed by John Campbell (Lamplighter Theatre®, Focus on the Family Radio Theatre®, Adventures in Odyssey®).
Adapted from the book, Under Drake’s Flag, by G.A. Henty
Having heard the production when it was first released, I’m a firm believer that this series is going to take off due to the producers’ high standard of quality entertainment for families. If you love Adventures in Odyssey, Focus on the Family Radio Theatre, and Lamplighter Theatre productions, then The Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty are right up your alley! The acting is superb with sound design and cinematic music that puts you in the story as the events unfold.
