Top-selling children’s theatre producers Fiery Light will bring its 2014 - 2015 tour of Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure - a brand new full-length stage adventure for children - to the Victoria Theatre on January 28 and 29.

Based on the popular CBeebies’ TV show, Octonauts, this exciting new production involves the entire crew of the Octonauts, led by intrepid explorer Captain Barnacles, Lieutenant Kwazii and Medic Peso, as they embark on a new underwater quest visiting amazing underwater worlds full of adventure, and 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.

Richard Lewis, who adapted and directed the hugely popular three Peppa Pig stage shows and last year’s Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom tour, gives The Octonaurs the same treatment.

Matt Lewis is the lyricist, Simon Scullion the designer, Matt Haskins lighting designer and Ian Horrocks Taylor is sound designer.

The cast is Elaine Hartley, Michael Lapham, Luke Lennox, Janette McManus, Angela Nesi, Paul Lawrence Thomas and Ben Thornton.

Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure is produced by live children’s show supremos Fiery Light (joint venture by Fiery Angel and Limelight Productions), the team also behind the recent tours of the three successful Peppa Pig stage shows.

Director/adapter Richard Lewis says: “Octonauts is all about adventure and exploration, which offers up a whole host of possibilities in a live environment. From the colourful characters and fantastic underwater setting to the amazing octopod where the Octonauts live, there’s great scope for a really unique, interactive theatre experience.”
