Pieces of eight, pieces of eight!
The adventure of Jim Hawkins and a gang of dangerous pirates will be brought to life in this playful interpretation of the famous story. The audience will surround the action as they are transported to the Treasure Island by a small company of actors portraying many characters and playing live music.
Young Jim’s life changes forever when he discovers a treasure map and sets out to hunt for gold! He outwits bloodthirsty pirates and learns that the treasure is not the shiny loot he was expecting, but something much more precious.
Oh, and there’ll be girl pirates amid these shores too!
Promoting Ramsey’s Ann Cuthbert said that “this is a great opportunity to have a Christmas show here in Ramsey and this project (funded by Ramsey Million) is very happy to be involved. Fun for the family, a night out for anyone who loves live performance, a treat for Treasure Island fans and a chance to have a tot of rum with the pirates!”
The show is created by Lamphouse Theatre, a vibrant fringe theatre company from Peterborough. Directed by Tom Fox (National Theatre, Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh and Eastern Angles) and created with the company.
