On the weekend we went to the swan theatre in High Wycombe to see the Octonauts Live show. Oscar was very excited and had been watching back to back Octonauts episodes from the Wednesday before. In Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure the entire crew of the Octonauts, led by intrepid explorer Captain Barnacles, Lieutenant Kwazii and Medic Peso, embark on an exciting new underwater quest and visit amazing underwater worlds full of adventure, with surprises around every corner. This action-packed interactive show features new music (from BAFTA-award winning composer Mani Svavarsson) and all the Octonauts live on stage for the very first time.
The show really includes the children and gets them to move around to steer the Octopod and at the end Oscar was chuffed that they told everyone that they were fully fledged Octonauts too. The show lasted around 90 minutes including the interval and Oscar loved every minute of it.
As a cartoon to stage show this is the best we have seen by far, the costumes were great and the set was amazing. Oscar really believed we were watching 'the real' Octonauts. He couldn't believe it. The puppeteering when the animals were in the midnight zone of the ocean was fantastic and Oscar was amazed at the different types of sea creatures. It really teaches children about the ocean and all the different zones and animals that live in each one.
This is a stage show for the family that is not to be missed! You can book tickets at www.octonautslive.co.uk and below are the remaining tour dates.
