“Look lively, lads – there’s treasure here!”
The story of Jim Hawkins and the treacherous Long John Silver will be retold when Harleston Players bring their version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island to the stage, starting from tonight.
The story begins when young Jim is given a map of a tropical island by a dying pirate. The map marks the postion of a vast buried treasure – and Jim’s danger-filled adventure on board the Hispaniola begins.
Ship’s cook Silver is a false friend but ultimately redeems himself by saving Jim from a crew of cut-throat pirates.
Evening performances take place tonight, tomorrow and February 5 and 6 at Archbishop Sancroft High School at 7.30pm, and there are matinees on both Saturdays at 2.30pm.
Tickets are £8.50, or £6.60 concessions, and on sale at Harleston Pet Stores. Alternatively, phone 01379 852845. More details, www.harleston players.co.uk or www.facebook.com/harlestonplayers
