Hunting treasure with Young People’s Theatre
The Young People’s Theatre Company of Surrey is ready to set sail on an adventure of historic proportions.
From Feb. 22 to 24, SYTCO presents its 16th season production at the Surrey Arts Centre with an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel, Treasure Island.
Directed by Susan Pendleton, the family classic takes audiences on a journey with young Jim Hawkins and explores his relationship with the notorious Long John Silver as Jim enters the treacherous life of pirates and treasure hunting.
It begins at an inn off the coast of England in 1775 and quickly becomes a tale of greed, lies and mayhem.
