A pantomime by Ben Crocker
Directed by Alana Gowdy

If you didn’t get enough pirates last year, this one is for you! Treasure Island is the story of young Jim Hawkins and his adventures aboard a pirate ship headed by the fearsome Long John Silver. In this version of the tale however we also find out what happens to Jim’s mother, his true love Jenny, her father the Squire, Polly the Parrot and of course the Smuggler’s Cove Women’s Institute as they join Silver’s band of bloodthirsty pirates. A madcap, laugh a minute pirate adventure story from start to finish!
