Captain Festus McBoyle and his motley crew have been successfully infecting NZ for over 7 years. Armed with cheeky humour and side-splitting songs, this Madcap Troupe is more fun than a squirrel up ya’ jumper!

Complete with trusty wife Miss Lucy Drawers and strongman extraordinaire ‘The Great Ebeneza’, the Captain offers a 1st class voyage into his weird and wonderful world. Regularly compared to Monty Python, Spike Milligan and Benny Hill, this clever Vaudeville ensemble is a must see. Flaunting Pantomime and Music hall origins, they manage to transcend both age and culture with ease.

Family entertainment at its best…….. Musical comedy at its finest…… The ultimate rotten entertainers!
