LONG JOHN SILVER – The one-legged legend himself. Intelligent, wily, unflappable.

JIM HAWKINS – Son of the Landlady of the Admiral Benbow. Yearns for adventure on the high seas.

SQUIRE TRELAWNY– Good natured, red-faced, cheery and rumbustious, if a little foolhardy.

DOCTOR LIVESY – Intellectual and well organised. Carries the Squire home from the pub.

SECONDARY CHARACTERS (20 to 60 lines):

BLACK DOG – In charge of punishment on The Hispaniola. This fiend turns out to be a real wimp underneath his sadistic exterior.


BIG JESSE – A great big wuss! He’s terrified of his own reflection. Pickles make him ‘dreadful windy’. A really rubbish pirate.

BEN GUNN – The lucky maroonee on Treasure Island! He has the elegance and air of Noel Coward blended with the pulling power of Hugh Hefner! He dreams and sings about cheese a lot.

MR ARROW – The dutiful and unassuming first mate on The Hispaniola. Leads the crew in the community sing-alongs.

CAMEOS (up to 20 lines):

BILLY BONES  – A grumpy, rum-soaked, crusty old sea dog, resident at the Admiral Benbow. Doesn’t make it to the end of Scene One!

BLIND PEW* – Withered old blind beggar. Scares the living daylights out of the patrons.

POLLY * – Silver’s prattling pet parrot. Cheeky and ever so slightly camp!

ENSEMBLES (mostly group singing, any number in each)

PATRONS OF THE ADMIRAL BENBOW – Drunken locals fed up with Billy Bones going on and on and on…


PIRATES – A band of rollicking buccaneers. They are superstitious and a bit daft! Several solo lines, spoken and sung.

BEN'S BEVY OF BEAUTIES – A tribe of beautiful grass-skirted women who swoon over Ben Gunn! Hello!

FLINT'S PHATOM CREW – The ghosts of Flint’s murdered crew. Their pirates’ clothes are all ragged and torn and covered in dust and cobwebs. They mooch about the island warning people that the treasure is cursed, a bit like the baddies in Scooby Doo except these ones sing!

Our shows begins in The Admiral Benbow, a dingy pub, owned by young Jim Hawkins and his mother. The old sea dog, Billy Bones is telling a tale of the vicious pirate Captain Flint who buried his vast treasure on an island and then murdered his crew (Fifteen Men). The terrifying Blind Pew bursts in and demands to see Bones, to whom he hands the Black Spot, a sign which terrifies Bones so much he dies of fright. Jim and his friends, the reliable Doctor Livesey and the cheerful but foolhardy Squire find a treasure map in Billy Bones’ old sea chest and decide to take a journey to find the buried treasure. Little do they know they are already being watched!

The crew of the Hispaniola are preparing to leave the for the journey (We’re On Our Way), led by the trustworthy first mate, Mr Arrow. Jim meets the one-legged Long John Silver, the ships cook, who appears very friendly and promises to look after him on the journey. Later, Long John Silver, eavesdropping on a conversation between the Doctor and Jim, finds out that Jim has the key to the locker where the treasure map is kept.

On the deck of the Hispaniola Jim falls inside the apple barrel from where he overhears the nasty Black Dog and the wimpish Big Jesse discussing a planned mutiny. Long John Silver appears and tells them not to be so hasty. Jim resolves to tell the Squire and the Doctor of the horrifying news he has just heard (Facing Up to the Danger). On arrival at Skull Island our heroes decide the best course of action is to allow the crew to go ashore, while they plan their next move.

Long John Silver instructs Black Dog and Big Jesse to stay behind on the ship, kidnap Jim and steal the treasure map. The rest of the pirates make their way to the island, thrilled about the riches they are about to find there (We’re Gonna be Rich!). With Jim now missing, the Squire the Doctor and Mr Arrow realise he is in great danger, so they make their way to the island to look for him. Still on board, Jim tricks his captors, retrieves the map and escapes on his own to the island. During a furious argument, Big Jesse, finding strength in a story Jim has just told him, stands up to Black Dog, forcing Black Dog finally to admit that he all he wants to do is to go home (I Wanna Go Home!). Despite the fact that no one else is on board, the newly confident Big Jesse announces that the mutiny is complete as he raises the Skull and Crossbones (Up the Jolly Roger) above the Hispaniola!

The pirates are enjoying themselves singing and dancing round a fire on the beach (A Pirating Life) waiting for the map to arrive, when Jim comes ashore. Silver, seeing that Jim has map, and, impressed by Jim’s resourcefulness, tries to persuade him to join them, and that pirating is a noble and rewarding profession. Whilst the pirates are busy singing the praises of their lifestyle (A Pirating Life, reprise) Jim slips away. After the song, the pirates notice their captive has disappeared and they scatter to find him.

The fleeing Jim stumbles across the urbane and well-spoken maroonee Ben Gunn reclining on a deck chair. The first thing on Ben’s mind is not rescue but cheese (I’d Rather have a Lump of Cheese) during which number Jim is introduced to Ben’s faithful Bevy of grass-skirted ladies. Ben was marooned three years previously during a failed pirate mission searching for Flint’s treasure. Silver and the rest of the crew had abandoned him as punishment for instigating the wild goose chase. Jim tells Ben that Silver and his men are indeed back on the island and hunting him down. Ben offers his and his girls’ services to defeat the pirates.

The Squire, the Doctor and Mr Arrow are relaxing at an abandoned Beach Club (one of Ben’s failed ventures!) (Island Paradise). Jim, Ben and the girls join forces with them just in time for a visit by Silver who threatens them
