A traditional pantomime by Beth Story very loosely based on the classic by Robert Louis Stevenson, and directed by Mary Mulcahy, comes to Exmouth!

A traditional pantomime by Beth Story very loosely based on the classic by Robert Louis Stevenson, and directed by Mary Mulcahy, comes to Exmouth!

It’s the tale of a West Country lad (Jim) and his widowed mum, who run a local hostelry. (You’ve never seen a lad like this one, and Mum’s a bit strange too!).

Jim longs for adventure and to sail the high seas. His chance comes when he is given a treasure map by Billy Bones who in turn is given the fatal “black spot” by Blind Pugh.

The notorious pirates, led by Long John Silver, hear about it, so Jim and Mum escape along with two outrageous barmaids and enlist the help of the Squire, Dr Livesly and the Squire’s beautiful niece, Lucinda (“Yeah! That’s what they all say”). They head for Bristol Docks where the Hispianola is waiting. Then the adventure begins.

The cast is made up with panto stalwarts and very enthusiastic (new to panto members) who make a very strong cast. Also a troupe of delightful dancers to add a bit of decorum to the proceedings.

Come and sail with us and be ready for the unexpected.

Treasure Island runs Wednesday, January 11, through Saturday, January 21.

Curtain up is 7.30pm with Saturday matinees at 2.30pm (no performance on Sunday 15) at the Blackmore Theatre, 10 Bicton Street, Exmouth. Tickets are £6 each with a Family ticket £20, (two adults, two children), and available at the Magnolia Centre Kiosk, Exmouth 10am - 2pm daily from Tuesday, January 3, (except Sundays) or call the Blackmore Theatre ticketline on 07905 761 485.
