Happy Thoughts Drama Company presents Treasure Island at the Theatre Royal, Workington, based on the original childrens book by Robert Louis Stevenson. After the success of their previous productions of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Beauty and the Beast and The Second Star to the Right, the Cockermouth youth theatre is back in April with an adaptation of Treasure Island.
 
Treasure Island tells the story of young Jim Hawkins on his quest to explore the high seas with the help of peg-legged pirate Long John Silver. In this version, Jemima Hawkins seeks adventure outside of her life at the Admiral Benbow inn, and finds it when a strange sailor named Billy Bones comes to stay with a chest of secrets and stories of the ocean. When Billy Bones is discovered by a group of cutthroat buccaneers, Jem finds the thing that he is keeping so secret is a map to the fabled fortune of pirate Captain Flint. With the help of family-friend Dr. Livesey, fiery Captain Smollett and pompous peacock Squire Trelawney, Jem sets sail to retrieve the treasure and sail the seas. Along the way, Jem runs across a group of scarred, dishevelled and tattooed 'sailors', led by the savvy sea cook Mr. Silver, who takes Jem under his wing on the voyage. Along the way the crew must battle storms; brave the waves and even fight off sirens at Mermaid Cove.
 
Featuring a cast of young actors aged 10 – 25, Treasure Island is guaranteed to be a great show for all the family! Performances take place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th April 2016 at 1pm and 6pm, at Workington Theatre Royal. Tickets cost £7 for adults and £5 for under 16s, and can be purchased online or by calling 07826 519000.
