A PIRATE took to the streets of Dingwall last week to let people know about the treasures in store locally.

Dingwall Players are teeing up an outdoor performance of Treasure Island at the Storehouse at Foulis on July 28, 29 and 31 at 7pm.

Tickets are free, but must be booked in advance via www.dingwallplayers.org to meet existing requirements.

The performance builds on the success of a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the same spot last summer. The Cromarty Firth will offer a perfect backdrop for the socially distanced, outdoor, non-seated, promenade performance of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic.

The audience can look forward to “a tale of pirates, buried treasure and an interfering parrot!”

The performance, touted as being suitable for all of the family, invites audience members to “come dressed as a pirate and join the crew on the quest to discover Treasure Island!”

The news is a shot in the arm for the arts scene as it makes a recovery following Covid-19 restrictions.

In further good news, it has been confirmed that from October 21-23, Dingwall’s Word on the Street Festival will be again offering a programme of music, comedy, workshops, talks, walks and readings through face-to- face and online sessions.

This will be followed in December by a unique Christmas production, A Highland Nativity, staged at Dingwall Mart.
