Treasure Island’s Pirate Pete set out on his maiden voyage to Dunstable Library this week to read to local children.
Swashbuckling and terrifyingly brilliant tales of pirates, princesses and parrots were told to the youngsters.
Pirate Pete – actor, magician and buccaneer – arrived armed with magic tricks, oodles of enthusiasm and his robo-fish.
He brought with him tales from the seven seas to encourage children to engage with the exciting world of literature and theatre.
Pirate Pete demonstrated how old classics can be brought to life through acting, costume and performance.
The show, Treasure Island, is sailing fast to the Grove Theatre, Dunstable, for October half-term on October 30 at 2.30pm.
The Grove Theatre and LP Creatives, producers of Treasure Island, are making the world of literature and theatre more accessible for a younger age group.
The Grove is dedicated to providing access to the arts and encouraging people of all ages to engage in theatre.
Pirate Pete said: “It’s so wonderful to keep children’s imagination going, and I thought what would be a better way to do it than with telling stories.”
Pirate Pete can’t wait to see everybody at the show for swashbucklers of all ages which promises to be a real mix of pirates, princesses, monkeys, parrots and huge explosions!
Treasure Island is a spectacular children’s show created to spark the children’s imagination while also entertaining all the accompanying mums, dads, grandmas and grandads!
