All aboard: Cheap and Dodgy Productions set sail on cruise ship for new show

Cheap and Dodgy Productions are back for 2018 and preparing to present to Mandurah audiences their new show European Vacation.

Starring Mandurah MP David Templeman and Carole Dhu, the show this summer is the company’s ninth production and has already been described as an “absolute debacle”.

Ms Dhu said the rag-tag team will take you on a journey like no other – and one you’ll never forget.

“This year's show is based on the comedy premise of an erratic cruise down the backwaters and sewers of Europe on a rusty old cruise ship,” she said.

“The show is made up of comedy skits, sketches and a mixture of comedy songs and some beautiful moments.”

The show stars Mr Templeman as head steward and bursar of the cruise, Lance Boil. He’s joined by Ms Dhu who plays cruise activities coordinator Cynthia Barrington-Smyth and Geri Jones as on-board entertainer Roger U Thoroughly.

Ms Dhu said audiences could expect a rocky but hilarious ride aboard their Farse Cruises Ship.

“Everyone else plays our inept crew and the cast of passengers or people we meet when we visit the countries,” she said.

“We visit Russia, Finland, England, Austria, Transylvania, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and accidentally end up seriously off course at the end.”

European Vacation will play at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre in December. There will be two shows on December 9, one on December 10 and one on December 12.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children.
