Adventure on the high seas will be taken to venues across Northamptonshire by Looking Glass Theatre’s Travelling Players.

The company has brought Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, Treasure Island, to life with a staging which is currently touring many county venues.

Audiences will have the chance to meet the character Jim Hawkins and join his quest to stop Long John Silver and the pirates from finding the hidden gold.

An interactive, comical adventure “for all the family,” the show features four actors who play many parts, sing and even change the set.

The company is running a special offer. For tickets booked at the Royal & Derngate, a discounted ticket price of £5 for children will be offered. The code words “Black Dog” must be used on booking.

The tour will begin at the Royal & Derngate tomorrow at 7.15pm. Tickets cost £13 or £11. Ring 01604 624811.

The show will then move on to venues such as village halls in Old (Saturday), Titchmarsh (Sunday) and Paulerspury (next Thursday). It will be at The Castle theatre in Wellingborough on May 24 and 25.
