NASHVILLE – Explore. Rescue. Protect! "Octonauts" announces a brand new, action-packed and interactive theatre show for the first time in the U.S. The Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure performs at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville on Sunday, November 6, at 5:00 p.m.
Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 30, at 10:00 a.m. at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040, and in person at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick Street, in downtown Nashville.
The Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure is a high-tech production featuring costume characters and animated projections to a massive screen on stage. It features brand new and fan favorite songs led by the entire Octonauts eight-member crew including Captain Barnacles, Lieutenant Kwazii and Medic Peso, as they invite audiences aboard an underwater quest through a world full of adventure, interactivity, and tons of sea-life surprises. The live show consists of two acts each running about 30 minutes, plus a brief intermission.
"We are thrilled for kids and families to see Octonauts come to life on stage," said Amy Koudelka, SVP of Product Development and Brands, Silvergate Media. “The Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure is an opportunity for Octo-Cadets to be a real part of the action.”
The tour comes on the heels of new episodes of “Octonauts” premiering throughout the year on Disney Channel and Disney Junior. Seasons one, two, and three are also available on Netflix, and the first ever Octonauts 4D movie adventure is coming later this year.
“We are calling on all cadets and their families across the country to assist our very dynamic team of adventure heroes on their fast-paced, exciting underwater adventure,” says Jonathan Shank, executive producer at Red Light Management. “This stage show is packed with sing-a-longs. Audiences can expect a high level of interactivity with their favorite characters on stage.”
The Octonauts are the official mascots for World Oceans Day on June 8 at participating zoos, aquariums, and museums. In addition, many new Octonauts products continue to roll out as part of key licensing deals with Fisher-Price, Penguin, Ncircle and Leapfrog.
