Alex Franklin, Noah Geelan and Will Bicknell-Found
Kenny Shallows has always dreamt of being a poolside lifeguard. But when he wangles a place on the prestigious lifeguarding course at Hardwater Leisure Centre (largest in Britain if you count the car park!) he finds he is a small fish in a big pond.
Hardwater throws every conceivable obstacle Kenny's way, from kiddies stuck in the big flume to a slush-puppie nozzle with a mind of its own, from the hunt for a fabled elixir to the pesky windmill obstacle on hole 9 of the crazy golf course. Can our underdog stay afloat when thrown in at the deep end? Or will he lose his trunks, get chlorine in his eyes and swim into the ladder?
It's sink or swim; dunk or be dunked; splish or splash.
Join these three Footlights, 'master of comic timing' (The Tab) Alex Franklin, 'abundantly talented writer' (Varsity) Noah Geelan and soon-to-be Cambridge alumnus Will Bicknell-Found for an hour of narrative sketch comedy that promises to be a 'light-hearted, gloriously silly and really very funny' (★★★★★ Varsity).
The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today. Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
