Treasure Island The Panto


January 2013

Written By:

Richard Lloyd


In January 2013, The Playmakers performed Treasure Island – The Panto written by Richard Lloyd and directed by Geoff Yost. 

If you have read the books or watched the films, you will now that Jim (our hero) obtains a treasure map, is befriended by Long john (the villain) and sailed with him to the island where envy and greed take over and conflict ensues. Needless to say, our hero vanquishes the villain, finds the treasure, gets the girl and sailed off into the sunset.

Watch our panto carefully and you may find some similarities.
