The production runs from Tuesday, December 17, until Sunday, December 29. Evening performances start at 7.30pm and there are 2.30pm matinees on December 22 and 29.

A theatre spokesperson said: “It’s a dark and stormy night. Jim, the inn-keeper’s granddaughter, opens the door to a terrifying stranger. At the old sailor’s feet sits a huge sea-chest, full of secrets. Jim invites him in – and her dangerous voyage begins.

“Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story of murder, money and mutiny, premiered at the National Theatre, London, in December 2014.”

Tickets cost £8.50-£13.50. Call the box office on 01424 423221 or visit www.stablestheatre.co.uk.
