A Beccles-based youth theatre group is putting the final touches on its latest action-packed musical.
Waveney Light Opera Group’s Rising Stars will be staging its forthcoming production of Treasure Island at Beccles Public Hall from Thursday, March 22 to Saturday, March 24.
The cast of seven to 18-year-olds have been working hard to adapt Robert Louis Stevenson’s iconic adventure novel into a rip-roaring show.
A WLOG spokesman said: “This salt-encrusted musical adventure stays faithful to the original story, narrating a tale of buccaneers and buried gold, wicked pirates and buried treasure.”
A live band will accompany the costumed cast who have previously staged performances of Bugsy Malone, Les Misérables and Joesph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
