Treasure Island

About the Play

Our next production will be of an entirely different genre! Lots of laughs, fabulous costumes, singing and dancing and timeless characters. Plenty of opportunities for audience participation and fun for the whole family. Be sure to book early for Treasure Island, our Christmas production, written and directed by North Vancouver’s own Peter Zednik. High jinks on the high seas! Help our hero Jim Hawkins race Long John Silver to the secret treasure. Sing, dance and clap along to this pantastic send-up of the beloved adventure tale. Pirates, parrots and puns – Oh my! As usual, proceeds will go to charity. This year’s recipient will be Wigs for Kids, raising money to provide custom-fitted human-hair wigs for children suffering hair loss due to cancer or other serious illnesses. Wigs For Kids

Treasure Island is produced by special arrangement with the Author.

As Albert Einstein once said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” This production is for the imaginative child in all of us. Imagine and enjoy!

Welcome to North Vancouver Community Players’ annual panto-mime. We love to not only entertain patrons of all ages but to also support children’s endeavours on the North Shore. Christmas is our time for giving back to the community in many ways. This year the charity we have chosen to receive the net proceeds is Wigs for Kids. They provide custom-fitted human hair wigs to children suffering hair loss due to cancer or other serious illnesses. They also help to provide essential medications and feeding supplies not covered by any medical plan or program. Please remember to drop off your non-perishable food items in our Food Bank box. If you would like to join into the fun on and off stage, please check out our website North Van Community Players under the section Volunteer. We would love to have you aboard! – Fran Heaney
