The course charted.

Now all the good ship Hispaniola needs is the boys and girls of Scarborough.

This Christmas, the Stephen Joseph Theatre invites you to join Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver and the nuttiest crew in seafaring history on a madcap high-seas adventure like no other.

There’ll be songs, swords, talking vegetables, the Boyes’ Santa and a giant mechanical crab.

Called Susan.

Not to mention a bunch of terrified musicians who are on the quest by mistake!

A silly seasonal sea voyage is in store, with fun for all the family. So grab your eye-patch, prepare your sea-legs and get on board!

From the team that brought you Alice in Wonderland and A (Scarborough) Christmas Carol.

Adventure awaits…


Here's what the press had to say about Alice in Wonderland:

“fizzes with energy and playfulness… an utter delight.”
The Press (York)

★★★★
“Full of warmth, kindness and Christmas cheer – perfect fare for the season”
Yorkshire Post
