Jack is a young lad who loves to go fishing on the beach. He spends all day there and he even takes a scrummy picnic. But when he’s finished eating he has lots of rubbish he doesn’t know what to do with. It must be okay to leave it on the beach as lots of other people have left their rubbish behind. Or perhaps he could keep the beach tidy and throw the rubbish into the sea? Suddenly out of the depths emerges an octopus covered in rubbish! He is not too pleased! He tells Jack he needs to learn a lesson. Jack is then taken aback by a talking dolphin who pops out of the waves. The dolphin takes Jack on a very strange adventure beneath the waves where he discovers the horrible “Pollution” monster as he terrifies all the creatures in the world of the sea. Through his strange adventure Jack finds out just exactly what harm is caused by simply leaving your rubbish on the beach and discovers ways we can help to stop the harm we are all causing.

The trouble is he is helped by his friend “Cecil” the naughty blackbird and mayhem ensues with cake ingredients ending up everywhere, even all over Dromeo!

Treasure Island is an interactive play for children between the ages of 5 and 11 (Key stage 1 & 2). This classic tale of pirates, treasure and sailing ships is produced to introduce children to the classic story but also to enable them to create stories for themselves. Jim Hawkins leads the audience on a series of events and at each turn encourages the audience to suggest what he should do and what might happen next.
Should he trust the seemingly friendly cook with only one leg? In fact, who can he trust with the precious treasure map?
Members of the audience are invited on stage to assist with the telling of the tale by playing small improvised roles led by Jim. For example, Jim puts a big coat on you together with sunglasses and gives you a white stick. You are blind and you have to go and put a piece of paper in the hand of a drunken old sea captain asleep at a table.
A fantastic classic adventure where the audience become part of the action.
