Treausre Island Script
It's a pantomime!
Oh no it isn't!
Oh yes it is!
It's got lots of songs and awful jokes ... True. But it hasn't got a Dame, and it has a proper plot (sort of) taken from a classic novel ...
Oh, well it isn't a pantomime then ... but it's almost a pantomime.
Yes. The classic tale of Treasure Island (with huge apologies to Robert Louis Stevenson). The Admiral Benbow Inn is a refuge for women pirates -- and very bloodthirsty they are too. Billy Bones is hiding out there and he's got a treasure map, which a lot of nasty people want. He takes Jim Lard (no, it's not a misprint) into his confidence before he dies. What ensues is a daft hunt for treasure, peppered with many songs and jokes. Captain Smollett has problems with Health and Safety and Long John Silver is not only missing a leg but an eye and a hand too! (Now there's a challenge for someone!) It doesn't matter the age or gender of your actors - there's a part for everyone. With some audience participation and lots of laughs, it's the nearest thing to a pantomime that we are likely to publish.
