‘This is a brand new children’s stage show from the producers of Peppa Pig Live, Fiery Light! In Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure the entire crew of the Octonauts, led by intrepid explorer Captain Barnacles ( “aye,aye captain!”) , Lieutenant Kwazii and Medic Peso, embark on a new underwater quest ,and visit amazing underwater worlds full of adventure, with surprises around every corner. Brim full with songs , audience participation and action, the show features new music (from BAFTA-award winning composer Mani Svavarsson) .

The license to produce the stage show was keenly contested and Company Manager Stephen Brook bravely decided to offer more than the lowest common denominator to his audience. There is a strong narrative, jeopardy , science, laughs and success. Although aimed at pre-school children, the science will appeal to primary school and is far more ambitious in intent than Peppa Pig ensuring that the interest of parents and older siblings is held.

“Protect, explore, rescue” is the motto of the Octonauts as they explore from their Octopod combining ecology with science and adventure. The audience, young and old, lapped it up, and the two thirty minute halves were just right to hold the attention of the youngsters.
