The Octonauts Live features brand new and fan favorite songs led by the entire Octonauts eight-member crew including Captain Barnacles, Lieutenant Kwazii and Medic Peso. They invite audiences aboard an underwater quest through a world full of adventure, interactivity, and tons of sea life surprises. This is a high-tech production featuring costume characters and animated projections to a massive screen on stage.

“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 Octonauts episodes 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.”
