Whilst searching for hidden treasure, a famously selfish pirate captain has left a once beautiful tropical island littered with rubbish and its inhabitants struggling to survive. It’s up to Maggie and Roy to save it. Teleported from their school trip at a maritime museum into the centre of a swashbuckling adventure in the Amazon, can they win the race to find the legendary gold – and restore the place to its natural glory?
Will Maggie learn to work as part of a team and become a true friend?
Will anyone avoid sinking into that squelchy swamp?
And will Roy ever put down his clipboard?
Can YOU help them defeat this dastardly litterbug pirate?! Join these colourful characters (and some perky puppets) as they set sail on their quest! Explore new habitats and learn about the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling; caring for endangered animals; and looking after our world.
Suitable for KS1 and KS2

This show is a springboard into learning for the new primary curriculum. Plundered! provides a thorough entry point into the environment topic. We utilize PSHE, English, geography and science in our storytelling. Our resource pack for teachers also features discussion points and activities in art, music, maths, languages, physical education and geology for use prior to and following our performance.
- Pre-show activity
- Maggie and Roy have to climb a very steep hill on the island and need a marching song to give them a boost. Can you learn it and sing along to help them reach the top? It’s to the tune of The Grand Old Duke of York!
Oh, the famous pirate Anne
She fought ten thousand men
She marched them up to the top of this hill…
And here’s what happened then!
She pushed them off the top
They cried, “No, Anne, please stop!”
She didn’t care… they sailed through the air…
And landed with a PLOP!!
Feel free to dress up as a fearsome crew member too! Arrrrrrr!
