What do pyjamas and pirates have in common? This school holidays, follow Captain Pedro Pyjama and his crew, in a live performance to discover what it can be like when things just aren't smooth sailing. Imagine having to deal with pesky pirates or if the food runs out. What would happen in a sailing ship when there was no wind to fill the sails and move the ship? How would you cope if your clothes were washed over board and all you had left was your pyjamas?

Come in your pyjamas (yes, that' right) and you could become a crew member for the day. All will be revealed in Treasure Island as you journey with the captain's crew to plunder some of the world's greatest treasure. Will everything go well? Will you make it to your final destination? Will you be the one to make it to the top of the lighthouse? Come along for an unforgettable school holiday adventure.

Good info but the one thing I would have been interested in (drama) is more than half finished. Would have been great to get this info earlier.
