The Pirates of Christmas Island

Written by Jessica Duffield, Annie Kirkman and Alice Palmer

She Productions comes to the rescue to stop this Christmas being ‘rubbish’ with

 The Pirates of Christmas Island

A brand new festive family musical

If we don’t treasure the world, there'll be no treasure left to find. 


10-year-old Sammy has moved to a new house, in a new town, far away from her favourite person in the world, her Granny. The only good thing is that she is now much closer to ‘Christmas Island’- a mystical pirates’ haven, just off the coast of Spurn Point. 

With the help of pirate royalty, and an encounter with some marooned jellyfish, Sammy uncovers the sorrows of the sea and the truth about the island that kept on giving. 


Set sail with She Productions on this brand new family musical tour to East Riding Libraries this December. The Pirates of Christmas Island celebrates history’s Pirate Queens as they unite through courage, teamwork and some swashbuckling songs.
