Treasure Island poster

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum… it’s nearly time to weigh your anchor and set sail for Wadebridge Town Hall in early December to experience a swashbuckling Treasure Island pantomime.

This is Wadebridge Town Council’s first ever Christmas pantomime in partnership with Wadebridge Theatre Company Hopeful Monsters, and it’s sure to shiver your timbers.

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel and adapted by playwright Ben Crocker, it features adventure, treasure, slapstick and plenty of cake.
After the disquieting death of seaman Billy Bones (Kathryn Pipe) in their pub, young adventurer Jim Hawkins (Ellen Gibbins) and his warm-hearted mother (Panto Dame, Jacob Outlaw) set sail in a ship owned by Squire Trelawney (Tom New) and his daughter Jennifer (Rachael Watson, disguised as a boy).

Alas, their mission is sabotaged by villainous pirate Long John Silver (Ross Harvey) who together with his geriatric parrot and his henchmen, have recruited the only pirate crew they could find: the Smuggler’s Cove Women’s Institute, led by the not-to-be-trifled-with Davina Henderson (Katie Welch)

Alongside the main story are the hilarious antics of Seadog Sam, (Bea Gordon Clark) and Seaweed Willy (Maisy New), the dastardly Bloodheart Boys (Dylan Kilpatrick, Freddy Molesworth and Jackson New), and a charming chorus of children.

The audience will be kept on the edge of their seats through thrills and spills, wanting to know the answer to Life’s Big Questions: 
Does the boy get the girl?

Who will find the treasure first?

Does the pirate plank constitute a Health and Safety risk?

And what exactly is a Bedfordshire clanger?

“This panto is for everybody, young and older - there’s something in it for everyone. Come along and enjoy the fun!'
