When young Jim Hawkins is left a treasure map by the dying buccaneer Billy Bones, he sets sail on the Hispaniola in search of the island. Among the crew, the one-legged Long John Silver becomes his greatest friend, but Silver has a shocking secret in store, and when they reach their destination, Jim faces danger and adventure greater than he could ever have imagined.
In this adaptation of the classic tale, written in 2007, Stuart Paterson has kept close to Stevenson’s original novel, resulting in a fresh and thrilling play both to watch and perform. Our production is being directed by Meryl Raines (co-founder of the Harleston Players Youth Theatre Company and director of A Christmas Carol, as well as numerous youth theatre productions, including Animal Farm, Fantastic Mr Fox and the Snow Queen).
The play has now been cast, but if you would like to be involved backstage, contact David Cumming on 01986 788439, 0794 7318297 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are currently looking for a volunteer to take on the Sound Engineer role, and there will be plenty of other jobs to do, including prop making, set building and painting.
