Synopsis

Young Jim Hawkins seems on course for fame and fortune when he learns the far off location of hidden pirate spoils. With the bold and beautiful Lady Trelawny as "expedition promoter", he recruits a crew of the hardiest sea dogs and sea bitches to sail the good ship Hispaniola to Treasure Island.

But there's mutiny in the air and soon all are in deadly peril from the most ruthless pirate to ever terrorise the seven seas - LONG JOHN SILVER! The question is, can our young "Jim Lad" out-wit the scoundrel and live to claim the treasure?

This recent adaptation of Robert Louis Stephenson's much-loved classic has it all, fast-paced action, pirates, rousing songs and barrels of laughs. Coupled with a number of female roles for pirates in addition to fine upstanding ladies, this provides great theatrical fun for the cast as well as an audience of any age.
