Never speak out loud of The Island!

TREASURE Island, Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling piratical adventure, is the first 2020 show by third year acting students from Arts University Bourne­mouth.

The adaptation by Bryony Lav­ery, directed by Luke Kern­aghan, will be on stage at Poole’s Lighthouse from 12th to 14th March, nightly at 7.30 with a 2.30 Saturday matinee.

When a mysterious old sea dog arrives at the door of the Admiral Benbow Inn, little does the innkeeper’s granddaughter Jim realise how much her world is about to change. What dark secrets is this stranger hiding in his chest?

As she sets off on her quest, it will take all of Jim’s bravery and cunning to unearth what happened on the island. And, under the ever watchful eye of the one-legged sailor Long John Silver, might she discover even more than just buried treasure?

Filled with hearty pirates, squawking parrots and sparkling pieces-of-eight, Stevenson’s classic tale is brought to thrilling life. So hoist the mainsail and all hands on deck, as this electrifying and enchanting production carries you across the waves and into the adventure of a lifetime.

The costumes have been designed by the BA Costume Design students.

The show is suitable for audiences aged ten and older.
