“GREAT Fun ... at a Bargain Price !”

The Ship That Never Was
Ranked #1 of 17 things to do in Strahan
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 April 2017

Had an evening cruise to Sarah Island cancelled on our first night in Strahan , so we (2 couples) decide to attend the 5:30 performance of this long-running (23 years?) play . We were shocked (but gratified) to find that admission was just $15 for Seniors (us). The play is just 1 1/2 hours , giving us lots of time for dinner ... and it was an absolutely "feel-good" experience ! The focus of the cast of just 3 actors , aside from telling the true story, is audience participation , and they do a wonderful , laugh-inducing job of it! .Several audience members are integrated into the play as "actors" and the rest participate on cue , when prompted . It's pretty hard to imagine anyone NOT enjoying this presentation ; we CERTAINLY did , and would recommend that , if visiting Strahan , put "The Ship That Never Was" at the top of your priority "to-do" list .

This is a unique and thoroughly enjoyably event. Don't miss it! It will be the best $20 you spend on holiday entertainment. The two actors will take you with them in a hilarious journey through a piece of local history - with props and songs and more fun than you can imagine for 1.5 hrs. It runs until around 7pm and you will be out in plenty of time for dinner. Highly recommend for all ages.

Little live theatre treat! Great story to make all ages enjoy the history of the area. Lots of audience involvement (but not scary!), and children were captivated. Its a Strahan institution that deserves a full house. Dress warm, but blankets supplied.

This was a live show with lots of audience participation. Everyone who attended had lots of laughs and it is well worth going to and if selected, participate in.
