WEL­COME aboard Cheap and Dodgy’s Euro­pean Va­ca­tion.

Man­durah’s own Cheap and Dodgy Pro­duc­tions’ David Tem­ple­man and Ca­role Dhu have con­cocted an ex­trav­a­ganza of down-mar­ket com­edy and en­ter­tain­ment for this year’s an­nual Christ­mas show at Man­durah Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre.

The Cheap and Dodgy crew have cashed in on the lu­cra­tive cruise mar­ket and launch their Cheap and Dodgy Tours aboard Farse Cruises.

This year, with an in­ept crew, ques­tion­able pas­sen­gers and a very dodgy boat, the Cheap and Dodgy crew take the au­di­ence on a mem­o­rably er­ratic cruise down Europe’s most pol­luted rivers, sew­er­age canals and stag­nant pools.

Guided by an in­com­pe­tent skip­per, pa­trons ex­pe­ri­ence a cruise they will never for­get.

Be en­ter­tained by Roger U Thor­oughly (Geri Jones), ac­tiv­i­ties co-or­di­na­tor Cyn­thia Bar­ring­ton-Smyth (Ca­role Dhu), head stew­ard Lance Boil (David Tem­ple­man) and a galaxy of fad­ing stars as they duck and weave through the back­wa­ters of Europe.

Fol­low­ing an ex­tremely er­ratic and illogical route through the Euro­pean waste­lands, Farse Cruises ex­pe­ri­ences a se­ries of dis­as­ters and near misses.

The boat bashes into a jetty in Vi­enna and guests are treated to a spe­cial per­for­mance by the Von Crapp Fam­ily Singers.

“Maria Von Crapp in­tro­duces her seven chil­dren, born to seven dif­fer­ent fa­thers, for a some­what Aus­trian ex­pe­ri­ence,’’ Boil said. “We are not kid­ding when we say this is a Crapp per­for­mance.’’

Tick­ets cost $20 or $15 for chil­dren on 9550 390 or on­line.
