SAVVY Theatre presents Treasure Island.

                          

Come and join us on the high seas as we sail off on a classic adventure…

Young Jim Hawkins dreams of escaping his quiet country life; gazing out, day after day at the sea and imagining what lies beyond the horizon.

It’s not until a mysterious stranger arrives, pursued by a band of blood-thirsty pirates, all hunting for a map and a legendary treasure, that Jim is thrust into his long sought-after, sea-fairing adventure!

This brand-new interpretation, developed especially for SAVVY Theatre’s diverse cast, incorporates puppeteering and object theatre with swordfights and storytelling; an ambitious production, bringing this famous tale to life in true ‘SAVVY-Style’.

SAVVY is an inclusive theatre company, creating unique and accessible productions for both cast and audience.

Every year we bring our entire company together for our annual Christmas show, and this year it will be even more special as we look forward to welcoming you to our brand-new home at Fairfield Halls.

All performances of Treasure Island will be BSL interpreted.
