Enjoy An Extra Week On Treasure Island
The Dukes outdoor production of Treasure Island will sail on for an extra week, due to popular demand.
Thousands of people have already seen the walkabout show in Lancaster’s Williamson Park and it’s proving so popular that Treasure Island will now finally drop anchor on August 19.
Treasure Island has been running since July 4 with critics describing it as ‘family entertainment at its best’.
The production marks 30 years since The Dukes began promenading in the park and follows last year’s UK Theatre Award winning version of The Hobbit.
For this summer, Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel – Treasure Island – is given a new twist by the team behind last year’s sell-out production.
In this version of Treasure Island, the audience meet Jem Hawkins, a girl with a plan – to escape her troubles, travel the world and make a new life for herself.
The problem is that she’s chosen the wrong crew: an opinionated parrot, a bunch of pirate buffoons and the terrifying Long John Silver watch over her every move.
The audience join Jem’s search for treasure through the winding paths and entrancing woodlands of Williamson Park enjoying songs and plenty of fun along the way.
