We are proud to announce the return of the Pirate Crew of the Dead Rabbit to entertain our attendees once again!
They will have a lot programming spread out throughout the weekend, as well as being a master of ceremonies to our Beard Contest.
They will also be entertaining the crowd in between our musical performances on Friday and Saturday evenings!
Let’s not forget the most important event they bring to the table – the Anti-High Tea! So if you are not a fan of the fancy, high class High Tea we hold on Sunday, you can instead enjoy the debauchery of the Anti-High Tea. Always a good time as you enjoy a show and a meal!
The Pirate Crew of the Dead Rabbit is an immersive theatre troupe specialising in vaudeville, improv, and crime. What is ‘immersive theatre’, you ask? Well, it’s sort of like Imax Cinema, except instead of having to wear 3D glasses to pretend you’re part of the story, the action actually comes to you. Notable for on-the-fly story-telling, flash-mob entertainment and hanging a man inside of the Madison Marriott Hotel (don’t worry, he deserved it), the Pirate Crew of the Dead Rabbit is a prime example of what happens when a gaggle of urchins who grew up listening to punk rock and watching Indiana Jones movies decide they want to become professional entertainers. The Rabbits have performed in a soiree of locales more diverse than the wretched flavours of villainy at Mos Eisley Spaceport, including TeslaCon, Watch City Festival, the streets of Chicago and Boston, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and on stage for the Girl Scouts of America.
Their mission is simple – remind the masses that adventure is out there and sometimes a black flag is needed when a white one will not suffice. Their message is one of defiance and curiosity, of entertainment and the drinking class. Vaudeville! Improv! Crime! Captained by James Lovelock and crewed by so-called ‘artists’ and ‘professionals’, the Dead Rabbits are tangible proof that all hope for the human race is truly lost.
