A performance for children aged 8 – 12
Co-produced by Queensland Theatre Company and Matrix Theatre
Pirates, buried treasure, sword fights, treasure maps, muskets!
Join twelve year old Jim Hawkins on his hunt for buried treasure. But watch out . . . . there are double-crossing pirates all around, led by the notorious Long John Silver. Will Jim make it from his home in a small seaside village to the mysterious Treasure Island?
Queensland Theatre Company and Matrix Theatre bring you this classic children’s story, in a new adaptation with sixteen characters and two actors.
A magical coming of age story, and the original classic pirate tale, Treasure Island explores themes of adventure and escapism, coming of age, role models and overcoming fears.
Your kids will love the show, but wait – there’s more! Queensland Theatre Company invite you to stick around and watch as the kids transform into real-life pirates. Free activities after the performance include pirate-hat making, loot bags, a chance to “sail away” on their very own pirate ship, and listen to more tales of yore in the story corner. You might wish to also purchase a special take-home pirate snack box! The fun continues for up to an hour after the show and then all the way home.
