The Fillacavity Hotel

Kinetic meets Fawlty Towers in a comedy on teeth, bones and nutrition

Brush those teeth

“Cripes Hester Fillacavity’s hotel is well wierd! Mind you – so are guests.

That rubbish actress Flossie Hargreaves is here complaining about the food-free menu – I mean it’s only like that for the good of her own teeth.

The archaeologist Mr Bones is kind-of sweet but he’s gone and lost his pet tarantula which has scared everyone.

And I’ve got a bad feeling about that cockney geezer with a false moustache from Renta-Denture so I only hope the combo of him, a ruby ring, that missing spider and a skeleton don’t make things go bump in the night!”

This spooky story examines teeth, bones and nutrition in a style where Kinetic meets Fawlty Towers!

The children enjoyed the show immensely… Such great value for money… Many thanks
