♫ Scubba da doo doo waah. So tweet tweet tweet, free a man for the fleet ♫ In Mikron’s 48th year of touring we present ‘All Hands on Deck’ by Vashti Maclachlan A homage to the trailblazing women of
world war two. ♫ Full steam ahead with Jenny Wrens ♫ ♫ So sweep sweep sweep, get an iron on that pleat and see that your hat’s just so ♫ ♫ Though the Admiral may say,
they are being led astray ♫ ‘All Hands on Deck’ tells the story of Ginger and Lily, two very different women who have two very different experiences with the Wrens
with the Royal Naval Service. One of them is so ambitious and wants to get out
there and experience everything and have adventure and the other one’s quite
staid and quite frightened of adventure so we explore the Wrens through their lives
but they’re great friends and they are separated by their wants and needs and
the different ways in which they serve the Royal Navy. GINGER: Lily, You can’t just run out like that LILY: I’m not sure anymore, should we be doing this, Ginger? GINGER: Why not? For heavens sake! LILY: Well I just think that maybe…
GINGER: A princess would grab at this GINGER: it’s like finding a diamond mine GINGER: A chance to work on a real boat in a real Harbour doing real work LILY: yes but my mother said to both of us that we needed to be careful GINGER: We’ll get used to the sailors, Lily, I am sure of it ♫ Come come, keep mum, blabbing mouths cost lives ♫ ♫ Watch your brothers and your sisters and your mothers and your wives ♫ ♫ You may think your Aunty Dora, has never looked demurer ♫ ♫ Take a close look, it’s the Furhrer, he’s a master of disguise ♫ ♫ Scubba da doo doo waah ♫ ♫ So tweet tweet tweet, free a man for the fleet ♫ ♫ And see that we plot our course ♫ ♫ you can take it from me, for we’re never at sea, it’s our Jenny, goodness know how many ♫ ♫ Full steam ahead with Jenny Wrens ♫ ♫ So sweep sweep sweep, get an iron on that pleat and see that your hat’s just so ♫ ♫ Though the Admiral may say, they are being led astray ♫ ♫ But we’re never at sea. Yes unfortunately ♫ ♫ It’s our Jenny, look we’re on a penny ♫ ♫ Full Steam Ahead with Jenny Wrens ♫ ♫ Loose lips sink ships. Do wah! ♫
