Whereas 'The Play What I Wrote' was inspired by Morecambe and Wise, Hamish McColl and Sean Foley now take their inspiration from illusionists Siegfried and Roy in Las Vegas.
Christopher Ursula Sassoon has lost his licence to perform in Las Vegas after an unfortunate incident with an emu. In a bid to make it back to the big time, he's decided to stage a Las Vegas spectacular in Newcastle. Teaming up with Roy, a pet shop proprietor from Portsmouth, Sassoon is ready to present his most ambitious show ever with showgirls, fireworks, dancing waterfalls, death-defying feats, an erupting volcano and the world's most amazing duck!
Ducktastic is produced by David Pugh, Dafydd Rogers and Scott Rudin.
