Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story is brought to life in a festive twist of fun, foot tapping mayhem and sea shanties galore!

The perfect Christmas treat for all the family.
The story has been adapted for the stage by Alan Pollock, who returns to the theatre to write his fourth festive production for the Cotswolds venue, having previously written their acclaimed productions of A Christmas Carol, The Brothers Grimm Present: Cinderella and The True Adventures of Marian and Robin Hood.
