Treasure Island is coming to the Stamford Corn Exchange in February.

See Jim Hawkins, Jolly Roger, old Ben Gunn, Billy Bones, Sneaky Beaky the pirates’ parrot and of course Long John Silver star with action aplenty on the high seas as LP Creatives presents Treasure Island at Stamford’s Corn Exchange Theatre.

This magical, family show is jam-packed with shanties, cheering, booing, puppets, lots of colourful costumes, amazing sets, illusions and maybe even a monkey or two!

The show is the brainchild of popular comedian and entertainer Tom Beard.

Tom is no stranger to children’s shows, having appeared in number one venues over the past ten years, where he frequently had children (and adults) doubled up with mirth at his comedy antics.

Tom said: “Everyone knows and loves the original pirate story but you won’t have enjoyed the tale quite like this before. We want our audience (both young and old!) to get involved with lots of shouting and cheering. We are after non-stop fun and laughter, whilst also staying as close to the original tale as possible.

“We’ve respectfully kept to Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling tale which everyone can enjoy, along with some humour for both the adults and the children.”

See Treasure Island on Thursday, February 18 at 2pm. Tickets from the Stamford Corn Exchange box office on 01780 766455.
