Treasure Island
Treasure Island

Expect treasure and treachery as a classic novel is adapted by a critically acclaimed theatre company.

The Pantaloons are to perform Treasure Island at Waddesdon Manor in Aylesbury on Friday August 7. It features just three actors playing all the characters – including the infamous Long John Silver – this unforgettable show from the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company will thrill adventure-seekers of all ages.

Jim Hawkins spins his yarn of plotting pirates and potty parrots as he is whisked away from his home on a voyage to an island where danger lurks around every corner and revenge comes with a capital “arr”!

The Pantaloons are known for their anarchic retellings of classic works of literature.

“We cannot wait for audiences to see our take on Treasure Island,” said writer and director Mark Hayward.

“We’ve got music, audience interaction, swordfights and all the mayhem you’d expect from just three actors playing 20 characters!”

“We characterise our work as post-modern folk theatre,” said Hayward.

“We take well-loved tales and give them a contemporary twist, making them accessible for new audiences and showing seasoned fans something that they perhaps had not seen in them before.”

The show starts at 6pm and tickets cost between £10 and £14.
