Join Captain Limebeard and his trusty parrot Lemon on a treasure quest across the seas in the July school holidays, as a new children’s theatre show sails into the Moonah Arts Centre.

Described as “an ‘Indiana Jones’-meets- ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ treasure-hunting adventure”, ‘Quest for the Emerald Compass’ follows seasoned adventurers Scorch
and River as they help Captain Limebeard find the legendary Emerald Compass – before his evil First Mate and former crew members can get to it first.

Audiences can expect lots of singing and dancing, colourful characters and plenty of slapstick comedy as they embark on a fantastic hunt through the jungle, where they will meet hungry alligators, dancing coconuts, flaming fire monkeys and scheming snakes.

Directed by Kate Vosper, ‘Quest for the Emerald Compass’ is presented by This Theatre Company, an emerging, youth-led community theatre company in southern Tasmania.

This Theatre Company aims to provide opportunities for young Tasmania artists and technicians who are just starting out in the theatre industry; and take theatre to communities who otherwise might not be able to attend or participate in live performances.

Most suited to children aged 5-12 and their families, ‘The Quest for the Emerald Compass’ sets sail at the Moonah Arts Centre from 14-16 July.

Morning, afternoon and early evening shows are on sale now. There will be prizes for the best- dressed pirate at each show, and opportunities to take photos with the cast. Tickets are $15-$45 from
