“It’s jolly, swashbuckling pantomime-like fun” - The Evening Standard
Capturing the energy and adventure of Stevenson’s coming-of-age tale, Harrogate Youth Theatre bring to life one of the greatest adventure stories of them all. Billy Bones has the secret map, marked with three red crosses. Blind Pugh and Black Dog are following him; Long John Silver and his parrot are closing in. Will Jim Hawkins escape; will Lady Trelawney and Captain Smollett arrive in time? Expect swashbuckling excitement and plenty of yo-ho-ho!
“A delightful blend of the salty and the silly” - The Independent
