What Is the Story of Imaginocean?
After discovering a treasure map, three fish friends (cautious Dorsel, outgoing Bubbles and jolly Tank) set out on an ocean-wide adventure to find gold. Along the way the group encounters various other ocean critters including a school of dancing jellyfish and a bubbly octopus named Leonard. During their trip, the fish overcome challenges and learn lessons on the importance of friendship and believing in oneself.
"Awesome effects! ImaginOcean is a treat."Review by Raven Snook from Time Out New York Kids
"A whimsical trip to the depths of the sea. Ingenious day-glo puppet creations seem to float within an inky ocean."Review by Andy Propst from Backstage
What Is Imaginocean Like?
Visually stunning and brightly colored, the show is performed completely in the dark with black light puppets taking center stage. A hidden group of puppeteers create the illusion that the puppets are actually swimming around the ocean—sometimes even extending out into the audience. The hour-long show also includes audience interaction and effects like bubbles and water that spray into the crowd to create a totally nautical experience.
Is Imaginocean Good for Kids?
Imaginocean is perfect for young children. The show teaches valuable lessons, and kids will love the eye-popping puppets and hummable songs. Its short running time prevents restlessness and audiences are included in the fun as the characters often ask for advice and applause.
