We went this evening to see this. Audience participation is obligatory but done willingly by old and young. It's well written and I guess over the years the jokes have evolved to keep it up to date. My husband and I were both given bit parts, don't want to give too much away but it was a great evening of... More

An open air but undercover theatre with two talented and enthusiastic actors who work hard with the various props on stage at the same time as performing their lines. An hilarious one and a half hours of audience interaction, performance, cheering the heroes and hissing the villains. All in the tradition of the music hall theatre era of olde. And... More

I can't rate this show highly enough. It was recommended to us by someone we met on the Bay of Fires walk and we were grateful. It is a very clever production. The set is ingeniously constructed as the show progresses. Audience participation is a major part of the show and not something to put you off attending. When we... More

An enjoyable show for the whole family, including our 2 year old. Actors were amazing and loved the crowd interaction and humour. Would recommend to anyone visiting Strahan.

This is a real treat not to be missed. Audience participation was hilarious. The actors have the ability to choose people from the audience that fit in perfectly. It really was a laugh a minute with superb acting.

This play is informative, funny, clever and involving. Be prepared to get involved, dress up and play a part. Have no fear though you will be kindly treated and made to look good. It is rather like a pantomime with lots of jokes and funny adlibbing. You must go if you get the chance. Blankets and hot water bottles are... More

Part history lesson, part pantomime, 100% wonderful high octane entertainment. Theatre at its best. The set alone is worth the ticket price. So glad we went. Blankets provided for Tassie chills!
