Description

Christmas at The REP

Join us on a voyage of adventure to discover the mysteries of the legendary Treasure Island - the perfect show for all the family this Christmas.

When pirates ransack Grandma Hawkins' inn, her fearless granddaughter, Jim unearths a treasure map and knows she must follow it to uncover its fortune.

Gathering a motley crew of sailors and pirates, Jim sets sail on the mighty Hispaniola and they seek out a lost island where riches await.

The ship's charming cook, Long John Silver quickly befriends Jim. As they follow the stars to the island, it seems Long John is not all he seems. Will Jim and her friends track down the buried treasure, or will they lose their lives in the process?

Treasure Island is a thrilling, swashbuckling voyage that will transport you to a far away, tropical island. This breathtaking, modern adaptation by Bryony Lavery (A Christmas Carol) retains all the adventure and excitement of Robert Louis Stevenson's timeless classic, but proves that everyone deserves an adventure.
