We’re super excited to announce just some of BRAND NEW Zack Adams merch which will be available at all upcoming shows! Button badges, guitar pick and MORE! Super limited stock so don’t miss out!
Join Captain Spaceship (Esther Longhurst) and her crew of intergalactic riff-raff as they travel through time and space exploring the cosmos, discovering new uncharted worlds and narrowly avoid copyright infringement.
Inspired by 1950’s Sci-fi serials, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Firefly, Red Dwarf and 90210, the Captain and her crew will make up their ongoing epic adventures live onstage aided by the audience’s suggestions. They could end up anywhere and anyWHEN and will have only their sharp improv skills, some cheap costumes and maybe some lasers to defend themselves!
Featuring members of Perth’s own improv-comedy institution The Big HOO-HAA! And the cast of the multi-award-winning FRANKIES, this is going to be one of the hot comedy tickets this Fringe season!

We are super excited to finally announce not one, but TWO shows we are co-producing at the 2017 Fringe World Festival!
We’re teaming up with Variegated Productions to bring back an Improv-Allsorts favourite! Ramshackle & Kitsch is the lovechild of Starsky & Hutch and The Mighty Boosh, a manic comedy based on audience suggestions and the finest of buddy cop traditions.
Ramshackle is an old school detective – a veteran who does what needs to be done to get the right man behind bars.Kitsch is new on the team – a wide-eyed hipster who is as equally excited about the job as being distracted by puppies wearing shiny collars.
Following previous fringe-hits Vicious Circles and The Ballad Of Frank Allen, we’re teaming up again with Montreal’s Stadium Tour Theatre Company to make the world debut of our new show THEM GOOD OL’ BOYS as part of The Blue Room Theatre’s Summer Nights season.
February 2, 1959. Clear Lake, Iowa. Four Musicians. This is Buddy Holly’s final chapter.
Them Good Ol’ Boys brings us back to the last moments of Buddy Holly as he struggles to regain control of his life, his music and his career, all in the middle of frozen Midwest nowhere, USA. Join Waylon Jennings in this chronologically impaired journey as we spy through his eyes and memories on Buddy’s last night, with a faint Echo of love, loss, nostalgia and survivor guilt. This is rock and roll. This is the day the music died.
The soundtrack to our latest show THE BALLAD OF FRANK ALLEN has just been released on bandcamp! It contains all the tracks from the show plus some bonus content!
Huge thanks to our buddy Alwyn Nixon-Lloyd for recording and mixing the EP! Thanks also to Alyssa Nixon-Lloyd, Brett Cullen and all our Indiegogo supporters for helping make it happen!
