Treasure IslandTreasure Island is at Lincoln Performing Arts Centre until Saturday, December 24.
There are two shows for families to enjoy at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre this Christmas, including a new telling of a children’s classic.
The main house show is the adventure-filled Treasure Island, based on the Robert Louis Stevenson novel.
Children can grab their pirate hats and treasure maps and join Jem Hawkins as she is drawn into a world of swashbuckling excitement brimming with buccaneers and buried gold.
She sets sail in search of buried treasure and has to overcome mutinous pirates to return home safely with her find.
It is being offered as an alternative to the seasonal pantomimes that are being offered elsewhere.
The venue, at Brayford Pool, has been completely changed and the show will be staged in the round.
Producers say this has created an incredibly immersive world where children feel like they are sailing the seas with Long John Silver and his pirate crew.
The show has already begun its run and finishes on Saturday, December 24.
Lincoln Performing Arts Centre is also offering a second Christmas show this year.
BRRR! The Lost Polar Bear is the story of Anja and the snowy adventure she embarks upon to find a snow bear.
The production is being staged in the venue’s 60-seat studio theatre.
A cast of only two will help transform the room into a winter wonderland with the help of songs, stories and silliness.
The show is aimed at those aged three and over to introduce them to live theatre.
It runs from tomorrow until Saturday, December 24.
