"They provided a professional, lively, humorous and thoroughly engaging performance for our students. Their terrific props and costumes added greatly to the overall success of the performance. Well worth it!" Andrea Lane, Teacher, St Patricks Primary School, Port Fairy
"I loved the Drunken Sailors. They had us all singing and dancing and they were very funny." Emily, Year 3, St Patricks Primary School, Port Fairy
Sea Shanties are work songs performed by sailors as they went about the repetitive daily tasks involved in operating sailing vessels.
“Sea Shanty Circus” uses the metaphor of circus skills to emulate the work performed. Even the flags on the boat spell “circus”.
They have performed at festivals including Port Fairy Folk Festival, The Taste of Tasmania and Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival (NZ).
This is a unique interactive musical circus experience. With over 40 years combined experience in performing, Shannon, Mark and Felicity create their own world on their self-contained stage/boat/tricycle. Experience them roving around the site in a show full of sea shanties, circus, theatre and fun.
