Descriptions of Shows

Seagull Sharing

A child named Adriann is very bored on the beach because they don’t have any friends to play with. Flying kites, building sandcastles, and running in the waves isn’t much fun if you’re lonely. Enter: the seagull interested in Adriann’s sandwich. Could this bird be the friend Adriann was hoping for? 

Abandoned Ship!

Captain Mud is a renowned captain of a pirate ship; renowned for being very rude! One day his crew up and leaves, sailing away in the life boats. The next morning, Raffi finds that he’s alone with the Captain. Will Raffi be able to help the Captain change their grumpy ways? Or will Raffi be left in an ever more uncomfortable position?

A Tale of Two Mermaids

One day Octo and Jelly bump into each other. They are mermaids, but perhaps they are not your typical mermaids. Each of them try to prove how much of a “mermaid” they are, and in doing so they end up embracing their own unique selves.

Krill’s Quest

One day Princess Horseshoe Crab gets stuck on land, with no one brave enough to save her. But one brave little Krill braves past the fishermen, predatory fish and the dreaded land to save the day!
