Captains Boots and Redbeard lead an action packed choose-your-own-adventure. The children get to dress up and take part while their imaginative input shapes the story. The show moves about the cultural centre while parents follow along at a sedate pace. Boots is a qualified early childhood educator and in amongst the pirate shenanigans the show incorporates real history, navigation, sharing and decision making.

Alex (Captain Redbeard) is a classically trained cellist with a passion for improvisation. He has been a member of the medieval reenactment group The Grey Company since 2009 and regularly performs with them throughout the year. While studying medieval history at UWA Alex starred as Gawain in a comedic rendition of Gawain and the Green knight. In addition to his acting and swordplay Alex also teaches cello to a range of beginner, intermediate and advanced players.

Over the last 10 years he's performed at schools, libraries, parties and festivals, toured to regional WA and Jakarta, and had stories filmed by the Department of Education to make into teaching and learning materials.
