Rising from the depths of Bunbury's Leschenault Inlet a bully crew of 20 Anchormen breach the waves and burst onto the stage with their rousing sea shanties and fo'c'sle songs.
Having learnt the ropes fast the Anchormen are rowdy and boisterous, valuing only two things: having a good time and bringing that good time to audiences Australia wide. Climb aboard and have the irrepressible Anchormen take you on an infectiously enjoyable and raucous journey back to the age of sail. See you all deck side.
