Synopsis

LOGLINE
Captain Chook, his parrot, Bono and his penguin, Goldstein, are taking the Tasmanian Princess home. Love is in the air but Captain Cambridge tries to spoil the party.

ACT 1
Captain Chook, his parrot, Bono and his penguin, Goldstein, are adrift on a raft in the Atlantic Ocean. Quietly, a ship slips in behind them. On deck we meet the villain, Captain Cambridge, with his crew and three captives: the Tasmanian Princess, Aphrodite; her brother, Barry and their servant, Gwen

ACT 2
While Chook is asleep, the crew are under orders to keep Aphrodite and Jack Tar (the lovers) apart but they slacken off and opt for a few tots of rum instead.

ACT 3
Barry gets knocked over by a group of penguins who are scared by a leopard seal. Barry berates the leopard seal but the seal is unrepentant. Gwen and Chook discover they share a secret.
