PIRATES, goodies and buried treasure will all star alongside cast members in First Act theatre group's upcoming show.

The group, for adults with additional needs, is busy rehearsing Treasure Island – According to First Act.

The production is loosely based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story, Treasure Island.

It follows young Jim and the pirate, Long John Silver, as they compete to keep hold of a map to find the buried treasure.

Their journey, of course, is not without adventure, giving the audience plenty of chances to boo the baddies and cheer the goodies.

There's even a parrot thrown in for good measure.

The show takes place at Shanklin Theatre on Monday, December 9, and Tuesday, December 10.

Both shows start at 6.30pm.
