Treasure Island

On the 20th and 21st of July SPYS will be performing Treasure Island! A spine-tingling adventure about treachery, treasure and a young man's rite of passage.

The enthralling classic tale of Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver and swashbuckling pirates is brought to life by Tony-award winner B.H. Barry. Surrounded by elements of wind and water, swords and sea chanteys, and old ropes and rowboats, the audience is swept away to the South Seas for an infinitely sensational, intimate and nostalgic experience.

After two fantastic full productions from the SPYS audiences can expect to see all of our youth section involved in this production, taking on lead roles, ensemble, music and dance, as well as technical elements of the production. So, save the date in your diaries and climb aboard and relive the excitement of youth as you embark on the treasure hunt of a lifetime!


Treasure Island

20th and 21st July 2018

SPYS recent production of ‘Treasure Island’ in a new adaptation of Robert Louis Stephenson’s classic tale by Phil Wilmott, brought swashbuckling pirates, damsels in distress and a surprising amount of cheese to the Parish Hall in July. The SPYS worked exceptionally hard to pull of a complex and intricate piece of theatre and we are always proud of their ambition, dedication and focus.

About Sedgefield Players

Formed in 1971 by a handful of enthusiasts as part of the newly formed SCA (Sedgefield Community Association), Sedgefield Players set high, professional standards but also have a great deal of fun putting on shows. The hard work and camaraderie involved is extremely therapeutic, whether on stage, back stage or front-of-house. New members are always welcome; no auditioning necessary.

Just come along to our regular meetings in Sedgefield Parish Hall at 7:30 p.m. every Sunday and Wednesday. Our youth section SPYS meets every Sunday at 6:30 p.m. also in the Parish Hall.

If you'd like to act, make costumes, build sets, operate lights or sound effects, sell programmes or make coffee – come and join us! You'll have a great time! Or maybe you'd be happy to come along to the Parish Hall and enjoy excellent live theatre.

We produce full-length plays in March, June and November, a pantomime at Christmas and, in September, a Festival of One Act Plays. The Players have gained numerous awards over the years, both at Sedgefield Festival and others, including Saltburn, Wakefield and the Isle of Man.
