It's 1763 on the dockside in Bristol, and Long John Silver plots with his pirates to find lost treasure:
"Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest, Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
Fifteen men went ashore with that gold in 1758, but only Captain Flint returned…. and with him a map. But the next year old Flinty went down with his ship to Davy Jones’s Locker... and no-one knows to this day what became of the map."
Robert Louis Stevenson’s "Treasure Island" is one of the most famous adventure stories ever written. This production by Alan P Frayn brings Stevenson's tale well and truly into the world of pantomime, with a comedy-packed script and a little harmless innuendo for the adults, well-known songs, and traditional characters including the pantomime Dame. Audiences are invited to come dressed as pirates if they wish!
"So ahoy there me shipmates and welcome aboard!
Come with us to places as yet unexplored.
On this expedition there’s one thing assured -
That excitement and laughter will be your reward.
So put on your lifebelts, let’s set things in motion,
And sail on our voyage to lands ‘cross the ocean.
Together we’ll share in adventure and pleasure,
This story of piracy, romance ... and treasure!"
