A tale of pirates, kidnapping and deceit in pursuit of buried treasure. Henrietta Hawkins and her son Jim, come into possession of a treasure map courtesy of pirate Billy Bones. But this lands them in trouble with Long John Silver and his cut-throat pirates. Henrietta and Jim escape and set sail in the Hispaniola to claim the treasure. Along with Jim’s sweetheart, Maggie Trelawney, Doctor Livesey and reluctant sailors, Fore and Aft. Unbeknownst to them, the pirates have managed to get hired as crew, by the gullible Squire and eventually take over the ship. The story concludes on Treasure Island, where they meet the demented Ben Gunn, a marooned sailor and lover of cheddar. This panto follows Robert Louis Stevenson’s timetable of events faithfully, from the Benbow Inn to Bristol docks and then a sea voyage to Treasure Island.
