We certainly don’t do what we do to win awards, but it sure is nice to get some!


The Ballad Of Frank Allen just got named BEST OF FEST at Calgary Fringe! Congrats to all the other winners!

UPDATE: Extremely chuffed and honoured tonight to win a Westey Award along side our lovely pal Alisha Van Wieren at The Calgary Fringe Festival!


It’s been an incredible season for us, and a huge thanks to everyone that came out and saw our show and supported the fringe!

We were also super stoked to win a coveted JENNY AWARD in Winnipeg called “And Now For Something Completely Different
(an award for being the unique and Unclassibiable)”

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!
