'This 50-minute big-hearted adventure becomes as snappy for kids as Avenue Q was for grownups.'
A one of a kind, live, black-light puppet musical, ImaginOcean joins the Summer at the House program, creating a magical undersea adventure for kids of all ages.
Tank, Bubbles and Dorsel are best friends who just happen to be fish, and they are about to set out on a remarkable journey of discovery. It all starts with a treasure map. As they swim off in search of clues they sing, they dance and they make new friends, including everyone in the audience. Ultimately they discover the greatest treasure of all: friendship.
Jam-packed with original music ranging from swing to R&B to big band, this show is a blast from the first big splash to the last wave goodbye.
ImaginOcean showcases black light puppet artistry, in which fluorescent puppets glow and come to life under ultraviolet lighting, creating a completely immersive environment for the audience.
ImaginOcean is written and produced by Tony-Award and Emmy-Award nominated actor John Tartaglia, whose illustrious career highlights include 10-years with Sesame Street, starring in the acclaimed Broadway musical Avenue Q, on Broadway in Shrek the Musical and in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. He also created and starred in Disney Channel’s series Johnny and the Sprites.
