DON’T MISS THE BOAT, ME HEARTIES
Darlington Civic Theatre
Tuesday 16 February 2016
A fabulous family production of Treasure Island is coming to Darlington Civic Theatre just in time for the half term holidays.
Audiences will be taken on a magical trip into a world of pirates, adventure and princesses as one of the nation’s favourite children’s novels is brought to life with a lively modern twist at Darlington Civic theatre on Tuesday 16 February.
See Jim Hawkins, Jolly Roger, old Ben Gunn, Billy Bones, Sneaky Beaky the parrot and of course Long John Silver, star with action aplenty on the high seas. This show is jam-packed with shanties, cheering, booing, puppets, lots of colourful costumes, amazing sets, illusions and maybe even a monkey or two!
The show is the brainchild of popular comedian and entertainer Tom Beard.
Tom is no stranger to children’s shows, having appeared in number one venues over the past ten years, where he frequently had children (and adults) doubled up with mirth at his comedy antics.
Tom said: “Everyone knows and loves the original pirate story but you won’t have enjoyed the tale quite like this before. We want our audience (both young and old!) to get involved with lots of shouting and cheering. We are after non-stop fun and laughter, whilst also staying as close to the original tale as possible.”
He continued; “We’ve respectfully kept to Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling tale which everyone can enjoy, along with some humour for both the adults and the children. The one thing we can guarantee is that everyone will leave with a smile on their face.”
Treasure Islandis at Darlington Civic Theatre on Tuesday 16 February at 2pm.
Tickets are priced £10 & £12, Family Ticket £40
