“An antidote to world politics… with period style songs, jolly and silly lyrics, and sharp-shooting dialogue… Not to be missed. A real treat.”  Gscene
All aboard! Full steam ahead on SS Freedonia for the craziest show to set sail. Four musicians with a secret, a girl in a green velvet gown, stowaways, a Mediterranean monarch, and glorious, unforgettable swing era style songs make this mad-cap tribute to the Marx Brothers, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby and the ‘Let’s-Do-The-Show-Right-Here!’ school of musical theatre, a must-see.
Award-winning company The Foundry Group followed the great success of Those Magnificent Men and The Ministry of Biscuits with this delightful confection – a perfect antidote to our troubled times. With a book by acclaimed playwright Brian Mitchell (Those Magnificent Men and Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks) and songs by seasoned musician Jerry Rulf (regular with Andy Roberts and Hank Wangford) played live by the cast, it’s hilarious, foot-tapping family fun.
Starring Radio 4 regular David Mounfield (Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show Radio 4), Brian Mitchell (The Ornate Johnsons), Amy Sutton (‘One to watch’ – Musical Theatre Review) and Joshua Crisp (Bard and Troubadour).
