A fun production! Adapted from the best-selling children’s book by Peter Harris. This 55-minute performance, with no interval, is well worth watching and ideal for all the family, ideally for 3+ years. My daughter and I were entertained throughout the entire show with audience participation and lots of singing original songs which had adults and children alike joining in. The shadow puppetry also added to the show.

There were no programmes or books for sale so the only spare cash you need is for refreshments. The storyline was easy to follow with a group of little girl pirates descending on a little boy called Tom at bedtime and all keen to go on a pirate adventure to search for stolen treasure which is in the possession of the grown-up pirates.... but will they retrieve it?... Captain Patch was a particularly fun character. The Wolsey theatre was the ideal sized theatre for such a production and reasonably priced.

Please visit their website for prices or call the box office.
