Treasure Island to come alive at Bedales

Posted on 28th May 2012

With sea shanties, live musicians, swashbuckling sword fights, cannons, guns and explosions, as well as a live parrot, Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous Treasure Island comes alive at the Olivier Theatre. The production is based on the legendary Bernard Miles version that was in permanent residence at The Mermaid Theatre in London and returns the tale to its adventure story roots, a long long way from the pantomime many know it as. This dark and glittering classic is a family show for all ages. Performed by students from Block 3 and 4, this year’s Summer Production runs from 28 -30 May at 8pm. Tickets (free) can be obtained from or telephone 01730 711511.
