- There are two summer holiday activities at York Theatre Royal for different age groups:
PLAY IN A WEEK: TREASURE ISLAND (FOR 8-14s)
Prepare to set sail for adventure in this lively retelling of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic novel, Treasure Island. Jim Hawkins, now an old man, recalls the discovery of a treasure map in the days of his youth, which leads to Squire Trelawney and Doctor Livesey purchasing The Hispaniola, a magnificent ship. They hire a crew and set off on the high seas, but with the one-legged cook, Long John Silver, plotting mutiny, the lives of Jim and his friends are soon put in grave danger.
Take part in an energetic, faced paced rehearsal week for Treasure Island, learn new skills, make new friends, do Arts Award Discover and have fun!
