About the Show/Event
Information for Treasure Island at New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme (Kids show). Following on from last year's spectacular adaptation of The Snow Queen, this Christmas we set sail on the high seas to bring to life a classic tale of buccaneers and buried gold in our stunning trademark style. Filled with swashbuckling sword fights, live-on-stage music, humour, puppetry and lots of excitement, this is the perfect festive treat for the whole family! 1750, Sleepy Cove. Tired of the quiet life, Gem dreams of adventure and excitement. When a mysterious stranger comes to stay at The Admiral Benbow Inn, she believes her luck is about to change. And so begins an epic journey. A journey filled with pirates and possibilities; buried treasure and blue horizons; seafarers and scallywags. And in the middle of it all, a good-hearted cook called Long John Silver - but is he friend or foe? As Gem helps search for treasure on faraway shores, meeting larger than life characters along the way, she discovers there's far more to a life of adventure than she ever imagined.
