When sailor Billy Bones staggers into the Benbow Inn with a treasure map and a final message, young Jim Hawkins, his Mother and friends are swept up into a whirlwind journey to find the lost treasure of Captain Flint. But the dreaded pirates have overheard their plan, and devise their own plot to get the treasure for themselves.
There follows a frantic race for the treasure, complicated by the fact that island castaway Ben Bones has already found it and dug it up, and has moved it to a secret location, rendering the map useless.
This new version of the beloved Treasure Island story will be the New Stagers Pantomime show for January 2015.
Fun for kids and adults alike; expect excitement, jokes, songs, audience participation and of course a parrot….
There were 10 performances of Treasure Island over two weekends in a mix of matinee and evening performances from Friday 23 Jan – Sunday 1 Feb
Venue: St Anne’s Hall, Wandsworth, SW18
“This was an excellent family panto in the traditional style with a strong cast and an audience that totally bought into the concept and entered fully into the spirit of the evening. Hilarious and well worked throughout with some excellent asides that the audience loved. A young boy really got into things and ended up being a real part of the show, even getting up on stage to add a nice touch of audience participation. I also liked the way the cast got the audience playing swaying palm trees and performing animal noises to make it a really fun experience for all.” Tony Sweeney, NODA Read Full NODA Review
