By Robert Louis Stevenson, adapted for stage by Stuart Paterson
Directed by Debra Elsdon
September 8-11 2021
Young Jim Hawkins, Blind Pew, Billy Bones, Ben Gunn – and, of course, the king of all anti-heroes – Long John Silver.
Join us on an adventure which starts with a curse and treasure map and includes killings-a-plenty, betrayals and acts of great courage. How perfect for our youth theatre who love stage fights, lots of shouting and a powerful death scene… or two… or three!
Stuart Paterson – master of the classic adaptation – takes us from the Admiral Benbow Inn to the Bristol Docks, via a voyage on the Hispaniola to a show-down on tropical, terrifying Treasure Island!
Our little theatre has been quiet for too long and will resound to a medley of sea shanties and blood curdling threats to the final HUZZAH!

ON GOLDEN POND
By Ernest Thompson
Directed by Suzi Whittle
November 8-13 2021
On Golden Pond is a classic American comedic drama that’s every bit as touching, warm and witty today as when it debuted off Broadway in 1978. Retired couple Ethel and Norman Thayer are spending the summer at their vacation home on Golden Pond, in the woods of Maine. Their delightful summer routine of fishing, picking strawberries and relaxing together is interrupted by a visit from their daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe leaving his teenage son behind for the summer.
After a difficult start, the boy becomes the grandchild they have longed for and as Norman revels in teaching him fishing and good books, he also learns some lessons about teenage attitudes. As the summer ends so does their brief idyll, but Norman and Ethel have been brought even closer by the experience. A funny and moving play of rare simplicity and beauty.
