About the show


Uncle Skipper is the lighthouse keeper – an old salty sea dog full of useful and useless information about life by the sea. He is a pillar of the Salty Cove community – kind, gentle and wise but he’s never lost touch with his inner child and frequently reveals an appetite for fun and mischief. Pip and Alba treasure the time they get to spend with him, they like the fun of helping out with lighthouse duties but most of all they love to hear his wild and wonderful stories about his own encounters in the Cove, especially when he exclaims “salty shellfish!” producing fits of giggles! Skipper is a great storyteller for our audience too. He sees everything from his lighthouse, so he’s the perfect narrator to share their encounters with our audience.
