Dukes Promenade Theatre: Treasure Island


The Dukes production of Treasure Island in Williamson Park
The Dukes production of Treasure Island in Williamson Park
Williamson Park, Quernmore Rd, Lancaster LA1 1UX


Tuesday 4 July to Saturday 19 August (except Sundays and Mon 14 Aug) at 7.15pm

With every show, the audience will follow the action by moving from one fantastic location to another to enjoy a rare theatrical experience which has become the UK’s biggest walkabout theatre season and attracted more than 500,000 people since it began in 1987.

In Debbie Oates’s version of Treasure Island, the audience will meet Jem Hawkins, a girl with a plan – to escape her troubles, travel the world and make a new life for herself.

The problem is that she’s chosen the wrong crew: an opinionated parrot, a bunch of pirate buffoons and the terrifying Long John Silver watch over her every move.

The audience will join Jem’s search for treasure through the winding paths and entrancing woodlands of Williamson Park which for previous Dukes outdoor shows have transformed into Neverland, Oz, Ancient Greece and Middle Earth.

Age Guidance Suitable for all pirates 5+
