Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight!


There’s everything you would expect, and more in this classic 18th Century adventure tale, with 21st Century variations.


The whole family will relish our rollicking, swashbuckling, timber-shivering production, including audience participation, swordfights, sea shanties and even a “cheese ballet” (?)


Our teenage Greenroom members will be supported by a handful of adult players, and will brave the curse of having a woman on board the good ship Hispaniola by sporting equal opportunity pirates and expedition leaders (to say nothing of Captain Flint, Long John Silver’s talking parrot) Come and boldly seek the treasure with us – you’re sure to go home richer!


“You can never trust no one when there’s gold for the taking”

Relaxed Matinee performance on Saturday 18th December 2.00pm - open to anyone who feels they would benefit from seeing a theatre performance in a more informal environment. Numbers will be limited to keep the atmosphere as relaxed as possible.


The show will be slightly adapted - the sound will be turned down a little and the theatre lights turned up and a relaxed performance always includes a relaxed attitude to noise and movement (voluntary and involuntary) in the auditorium.


There will be a special ‘quiet’ zone for anyone who might feel uncomfortable at any point in the performance. This will be a safe and supervised space for audience members to come out if they should find that the auditorium starts to become overwhelming.


There’ll also be lots of friendly members of the Front of House team to welcome you.  We can provide a visual (social) story for anyone who needs it as well as a clear synopsis. Please contact the office on 01943 609539 if you require a copy of the "Social Story" in advance.
