The Cardinal Buccaneers - Cabaret Show
This fantastic show adapted from the stage musical drama, is where the audience meet the pirates for the first time. With exciting sword fights using REAL swords, there is treasure to be found and there are some great pirate songs. This show lasting about 60 mins really celebrates the romance of piracy.
The story starts three hundred years ago, when The Cardinal Buccaneers died out - but one night during a storm something begins to stir out at sea. A ghostly pirate ship appears and the ship's mascot, the Jolly Roger, takes on a life of its own. With copious amounts of rum, the Jolly Roger revives four pirates who come back to life and escape lockdown from Davy Jones’ locker.
With the excitement of being alive again, The Cardinal Buccaneers have a lot of living to do and that’s exactly what they intend on doing. After getting to know them, it is evident that they are not criminal types, but four people who escaped traumatic backgrounds and through fate, were brought together as a kind of pirate family. They hate injustice and are ready to help anyone in desperate times.
The music in the show is primarily traditional, well known folk songs, like Black Velvet Band, The Leaving of Liverpool and The Skye Boat Song. The show takes the audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions, from laughter and fun one minute, to sadness and sorrow the next. They also involve the audience for competitions and games.
This is a show with a feel-good factor and a great way to celebrate a new leaf of life, where it allows the audience to leave all their troubles behind. Suitable for family audiences, this show is ideal for daytime and or evenings at your club, holiday resort, hotel, community centre.
