Captain Bimse in Saltimbocca

Captain Bimse in Saltimbocca


ANNA: One plus one plus one plus one doesn't equal four plus a cap! Four times one is four. You are not very good at math, Johnson. Do you agree, Captain?

CAPTAIN BIMSE: Well, if you have four buttons and multiply with a cap, then you have more than enough!


CAPTAIN BIMSE: Have a nice trip, Mr. Johnson. I hope you won't get eaten!

ANNA: Don't mind him, Mr. Johnson. Nobody will eat a teddybear!

MR. JOHNSON: Very well, because I'm not hungry at all.


GOGGELET: I don't laugh! It is against my nature!  And now be quiet, all of you! I can  be very quiet and reticent, when the mood takes me! And then I can be mute as a fish and two ties. That'll teach you!

Børneteateravisen ("The Children Theater's Paper) wrote: "The musicality of the actors, the supernice songs and the razersharp timing makes the witty story about Saltimbocca fly!" See the review here (in Danish). 


Anna and her friends, Captain Bimse and Mr. Johnson, must go to Saltimbocca to rescue Goggelet, who has disappeared.

However, Saltimbocca’s jungle is a wild and messy place with huge black pots that bubble and simmer, with bones, toothpicks and skinned tomatoes.

An incredibly dangerous guy, Ossobucco, lives here.

They are not allowed to laugh or speak his name – they cannot even whisper it, as if they do so, they will find their names on the menu!
