‘The children had lots of fun and they really liked the songs; the pirate theme was greatly enjoyed and they loved 'the black spot'! The musical has inspired the children to read other adaptations of the novel.’
- BW, Music Teacher, Isle of Man.
A superb, action-packed musical based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel. Treasure Island is full of swash-buckling, piratical fun - which makes it a superb choice for the end of year show!
The moment Jim Hawkins discovers the treasure map in Billy Bones’ sea chest, his life changes forever: 'X' marks the spot of a notorious pirate's loot! Jim becomes the cabin boy on The Hispaniola, a ship bound for Treasure Island. On the journey Jim encounters the beguiling one-legged ship's cook Long John Silver - but should he trust this cunning man?
Mutiny breaks out but with the help of eccentric Ben Gunn, Jim bravely helps Squire Trelawney and his men to win through. They defeat the pirates, locate the treasure and sail home triumphant!
