Captain Festus McBoyle - The Prose and Cons by Rich Manic

Presented by Pea-Knuckle Productions

Join award-winning kiwi family entertainer Captain Festus McBoyle for an unforgettable whānau comedy theatre experience laced with songs, poems, stories and epic fun.

Now stripped bare of his motley crew, The Prose and Con offers a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with this loveable rogue of the sea as he flies solo by the seat of his pants and offers a fabulously fun show that is both raw and incredibly honest.

Filled to the brim with well-crafted songs, extremely clever lyrical content, awe-inspiring tales of the sea (some tall, some true) and plenty of the usual cheek we’ve learnt to expect from this one-of-a-kind ‘Punk Rock’ Pirate, this event promises to be more fun than a squirrel up ya jumper!

Caution: Special guests may well appear - they generally do!

[Captain Festus McBoyle's] live act is in my opinion, the best live act in New Zealand and simply not to be missed.
