Explore. Rescue. Protect! OCTONAUTS LIVE!

OCTONAUTS PREMIERE FIRST U.S. THEATRE TOUR, Disney Junior Television Show, Popular Children’s Book Series Inspires Live Theatre Show, 60-City Tour Launches in San Diego Tickets On-Sale Now!

We saw this spectacular show this past weekend and I have to tell you it was one of the best kids shows I have seen in a long time. The characters were lively, animated and most importantly they had the audience engaged. The kids were up and out of their seats, singing and dancing. Talking and directing the Octonauts crew on their adventure, it was joyful to see all the kids happy and playing along. It was such a lovely experience as a mom, to know that my little one was having fun and was on a mission to Explore, Rescue and Protect was awesome. I highly urge you to splurge for the VIP tickets. It's truly a sight to see your little ones eyes light up when they meet the crew and take pics. Not only is it a meet and greet but they have coloring stations set up along with origami table to make sailor hats. So much fun to be had by all, even us moms, we loved every minute of the show. Bravo Octonauts, for your first time in the states, this was stupendous.

Explore. Rescue. Protect! Starting in San Diego next week, the Octonauts’ first ever, action-packed, interactive theater 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.
