Summer Family Show: Treasure Island

Summer Family Show: Treasure Island

Like the novel, the play with songs begins in an English port town. A young Jim Hawkins is thrown into a world of pirates and treasure maps by the mysterious Billy Bones.

Jim's adventures take him on a journey of romance - in the shape of 'Sea-dog Sally', a young Tom boy sick of her silver spoon up at the Governors house - and also danger as he meets the infamous 'Long John Silver'.

Together, with mutiny on the cards and a monkey in the rigging, they sail aboard 'The Hispaniola' to Treasure Island - whereupon they are at the mercy of not only the local tribesmen and the hopping mad 'Ben Gunn', but also the spooky presence of the dreaded 'Captain Flint'.

Treasure Island is ideal for theatre goers and families who want to see a truly traditional and all encompassing modern version of a play performed to an expert professional standard by first class actors.

This show is a slice of pure pirate gold!

LP Creatives production of 'Treasure Island' was a sell out during 2012. The show has received fantastic reviews and an immense array of positive audience and venue compliments, demonstrating the stories popularity and themes.

Tom Beard has adapted his version, based on the classic novel, for the stage last year and the LP team created a score of both original and popular songs to drive the tale along.

Children of all ages will enjoy the spectacle and style of the show. However young toddlers may find the show to be loud and frightening in places.

Recommended age 5 and above.

The show is aimed at families and as such there will be enough content to keep the adults as enthralled as the children.
