KD Theatre Productions’ production of ‘Treasure Island’ opens this week from August 26 to 29 in The Dean’s Garden at Ely Cathedral.

The production is staged by the team behind Ely’s annual pantomime and stars city favourite ‘Terry Gauci’ as Black Beard, alongside a cast of performers and circus acts.

Tickets for the production have sold quickly, selling out within days of going on sale.

Due to popular demand, another performance has been released at 11am on August 29.
