Get ready for a classic tale with a twist

Harlow Playhouse / Mon 14th Oct 2013 pm31 04:33pm

THE producers of the smash-hit ‘Fairy Tales of the Unexpected’ are performing at The Harlow Playhouse, this coming Autumn season with another fantastic show after wowing audiences during the Summer of 2013.

This time, promising fun for all the family, LP Creatives present ‘Treasure Island’ for one day only over the Autumn school hols (Sun 3rd November– 2.30pm)

The audience will be taken on a magical trip into a world of Pirates and Princesses as one of the nations favourite children’s novels is given a twist.

See Jim Hawkins, ‘Billy Bones’, old Ben Gunn, Sneaky Beaky, the ghost of Captain Flint, Seadog Sally, Jolly Roger and of course Long John Silver star in lots of adventures in a show packed with action, singing, cheering and booing, puppets, lots of colourful costumes, and maybe even a monkey or two!

The show is the brainchild of popular writer and comedian Tom Beard.

Tom is no stranger to pantomime, having appeared in number one venues over the past ten years, where he frequently had children (and adults) doubled up with mirth at his comedy antics.

Tom said: “Everyone knows and loves the original pirate story but you won’t have enjoyed the tale quite like this before. We want our audience (both young and old!) to get involved with lots of shouting, cheering, singing and laughing. We are after non-stop fun and laughter, whilst also staying as close to the original tale as possible”

“We’ve respectfully kept to Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling tale which everyone can enjoy, along with some humour for both the adults and the children. The one thing we can guarantee is that everyone will leave with a smile on their face.”

treasureIt is the latest project for producers LP Creatives who are fast building a strong reputation for their family shows and pantomimes around the country. Tom explained: “We had a hugely successful Summer season and are really excited to now bring this production to Harlow for the first of hopefully many great family shows.”

‘Treasure Island’ is a spectacular children’s show created to spark the children’s imagination whilst also entertaining all the accompanying Mums, Dads, Grandmas and Granddads! It features a professional cast of all singing-and-a-dancing actors.
