The excitement is gathering for our latest in-house production, Treasure Island. We’re thrilled to announce the cast members.
It’s great because we’ve worked with two of the stars before and we’re inviting two others into our family.
Well, what’s the story of the show?
Orphaned teenager Jim Hawkins, left in the careless care of Aunt Agnes, is serving ale in the Admiral Benbow when the infamous pirate Billy Bones crashes into the bar and changes his life forever.
Perfect for fans of the Greenwich Theatre pantomime, this riotously chaotic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s beloved tale of pirates and buried treasure is full of physical comedy, daft jokes and thrilling adventure, with Jim setting sail on the high seas with Captain Birdseye, Blue Peter, Long-John Silver and the parrot Alexa…
Following last year’s productions of Pinocchio and The Wolves Of Willoughby Chase, this new staging of Treasure Island is the latest summer spectacular for families from Greenwich Theatre.
Treasure Island begins from 19th August to 4th September. You can secure your seats for this fun-filled, family adventure via the button below.
