Undersea adventures with the Octonauts Live

Oc2 The CBeebies series The Octonauts is a favourite in our house, so when I saw there was a live-on-stage version on tour we just had to go along and it didn’t disappoint 🙂

The producers have done a good job adapting a cartoon series for the stage and my two children were enthralled. Most of the action takes place in the Octonauts submarine with a undersea world back projected to give the impression of being underwater. They also threw in a few songs, a bit of pantomime-style audience participation, some puppets and some neat ultraviolet fish!Octonauts1

The show wasn’t too long (which meant our two-year-old enjoyed it – her first live theatre show) and everyone seemed to go away happy. I’d certainly recommend it.

The tour runs until July and it will be visiting Bristol, Swansea, London, St Albans, Manchester, Glasgow, Lowestoft, Southend, Swindon, Brighton, Sheffield, King’s Lynn, Harrogate, Southsea, Woking, Northampton, Lichfield and Blackpool.
