Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel, this action-packed musical introduces plenty of lively, nautical fun!
From the moment Jim Hawkins opens Billy Bones’ sea chest, his life is changed forever. He discovers a treasure map that marks the spot where a notorious pirate, Captain Flint, has buried his loot.
Jim becomes a cabin boy on The Hispaniola, a ship bound for Treasure Island, with the purpose of finding buried treasure! He meets many colourful characters on his journey, including Long John Silver, the one legged ship’s cook. Although Long John Silver befriends him, Jim isn't sure whether he is trustworthy.
Despite the many challenges that he faces, Jim shows courage and determination in the face of danger. Bravely, he helps Squire Trelawney and his men to win through, and - with the help of island eccentric, Benn Gunn - they defeat the pirates, find Flint's treasure, and sail home triumphant.
Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, this action-packed musical introduces plenty of lively, nautical fun!
'Excellent songs, music and humour, easy to direct and costume, good sound effects and having everything on one CD is fantastic!' Tracy Cheal - Teacher, East Sussex
Brilliant performance. Review by Anita Boyd Headteacher
This is the first year we have used a Starshine production and we will certainly be using them again! A brilliant performance enjoyed by all pupils showing off their talents and skills - lots of room for extras too! Many thanks.
Fantastic script Review by Teacher - Oxfordshire
Fantastic script and wonderful music. Easy to adapt to accommodate a small class of just 15!!
Incredible! Review by Zoe Love - Yr. 5/6 teacher, Berkshire
Incredible! An uplifting show which fully engaged the children from the start with the easy to learn, catchy songs and humorous script. The show stimulated lots of creative activities and parents were full of praise for our 'best show yet'.
Songs catchy, yet challenging Review by Catherine Fern - Peri music teacher, North Yorkshire
I am currently producing two of your musicals, 'The Pied Piper and 'Treasure Island'. They are so accessible; the scripts are well written and the songs catchy, yet challenging enough for the upper primary age group. Many thanks - keep them coming!
