Tickets On-Sale Now

Explore. Rescue. Protect! Starting in San Diego this Thursday on September 22, the Octonauts’ first ever, action-packed, interactive theatre show to tour the U.S. will head coast-to-coast visiting more than 60 cities including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago and Dallas.

The Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure invites audiences on an exciting underwater quest through a world full of adventure and surprises and features brand new and fan favorite songs led by the entire Octonauts eight-member crew including Captain Barnacles, Lieutenant Kwazii and Medic Peso. The high-tech production features costume characters, animated projections on a huge screen and a brand new storyline and script.

Tickets are on sale now. VIP packages are available through CID entertainment and include a meet and greet with the characters and premium seating.

“The live show brings these charismatic characters to life in a way children never thought possible, stretching their imagination and bringing them directly into their favorite character’s world for the day,” says Jonathan Shank, executive producer at Red Light Management. “Seeing the reactions of kids and their parents when the characters are on stage is one of the most amazing and rewarding parts about producing live family shows.”

Daniel Hersh, who plays the role of Captain Barnacles, is a Southern California native who graduated from American Musical and Dramatic Academy with a BFA in musical theatre. “We’re calling all cadets and their families to assist our dynamic adventure heroes on their fast-paced and exciting underwater adventure,” says Hersh.
