Get your peg legs and eye patches at the ready as a critically acclaimed theatre company perform in Sandy on Sunday.

The Pantaloons produce their own take on Robert Louis Stevensson’s swashbuckling adventure Treasure Island at the RSPB The Lodge.

The fun filled adventure on the high seas combines treasure and treachery in equal measure in this open-air production.

Featuring a cast of 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 having previously put a hilarious spin on Bleak House, Sherlock Holmes, The Canterbury Tales, Grimm Fairy Tales, A Christmas Carol and many of Shakespeare’s plays.

The show’s writer and director Mark Hayward said: We cannot wait for audiences to see our take on Treasure Island.

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

The show is designed for the whole family and people can also bring along a picnic and watch the performance.

Treasure Island can be seen on Sunday August 23 with performances running at both 1pm and 6pm.

Tickets for the show cost £13.50 for adults, £9 for children and £37.50 for a family ticket.
