Unfortunately due to COVID-19 risks and complications this event has been removed from our 2020 programme. 




A Vaudevillian Musical Comedy Show for the whole family. From the ashes of a 25 year non-illustrious Rock n Roll career comes the unwashed, semi toothed and slightly uncouth Piratical ‘cheese’ Captain Festus McBoyle.

Armed with just his cheeky humor and the sharpened hooks of his songs, the Captain is joined on stage by Miss Lucy Drawers and Ebeneza Strong and together become more fun than a squirrel up ya jumper!

Regularly compared to Monty Python and Spike Milligan, this Vaudevillian Musical Comedy Troupe playfully target unsuspecting families with the utmost precision. Transcending age and culture with ease, their almost ‘Punk Rock’ ethos will whisk you away on a first class voyage to sample their weird and wonderful world.

Your ticket also include entry to the PAK’nSAVE Pancake Breakfast, 9.30am session at the Great Lake Centre Hall. Breakfast and a show! What a great Saturday morning out.
