This show has very adaptable technical requirements.
The show requires a PA that can handle electronic dance music with vocals at a nightclub-style level.
The show can either be lit by a theatre lighting rig, or using industrial lights if this is unavailable, making it adaptable to any performance space with an appropriate PA. The show makes use of a data projector and screen, with video being run from a laptop onstage.

Craptacular! is proving to be one of Tomás' more accessible shows and it is an excellent introduction to his work for new audiences. It pairs very well with his DJ concept Crap Music Rave Party for festival touring. It is currently accepting bookings for festivals and theatre performances. To discuss how it may fit into your programming, please contact Tomás directly at captain [ at ] tomasford.com .
Alternative cabaret madman Tomás Ford sings the worst songs of all time. Can he flip them into kickass party jams? And will his street cred survive? An attempted spectacular of electronic beats, smooth-ish crooning and inept attempts at cabaret charisma.
"This is a juggernaut of a performance. Set against the ramshackle backdrop of packing boxes and askew projector screen, it is relentlessly energising... Guaranteed to enthrall, horrify, and delight, it is not to be missed."
★★★★★ - The West Australian
"While some shows don't always live up to the hype of their publicity, this one, which says that Ford sings the worst songs of all time, certainly does... a cleverly and originally constructed show... and one which is pure entertainment" - The Dominion Post, Wellington NZ
