Join Captain Bullock and Bosun Bell for maritime mayhem, magic and mirth. Clap along to the swinging Indian clubs as our our seafaring mateys navigate the celestial spheres. The finale features the brave little Dove of Peace & Love being fired out of a Canon!! Come and see if she survives! It’s a nautical extravaganza of eccentric experiments, sensational circus skills, and hilarious feats of derring-do.
