surprises. Starting in San Diego on September 22, the tour will head

Atlanta, Boston, Chicago and Dallas.

The Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure is a high-tech
production featuring costume characters and animated projections to a
massive screen on stage. “We are thrilled for kids and families to see
Octonauts come to life on stage,” said Amy Koudelka, SVP of Product
Development and Brands, Silvergate Media. “The Octonauts and the Deep
Sea Volcano Adventure is an opportunity for Octo-Cadets to be a real
part of the action.”

The tour comes on the heels of new Octonauts episodes premiering
throughout the year on Disney Channel and Disney Junior. Seasons one,
two and three are also available on Netflix, and the first ever
Octonauts 4D movie adventure is coming later this year.

“We are calling on all cadets and their families across the country to
assist our very dynamic team of adventure heroes on their fast-paced,
exciting underwater adventure,” says Jonathan Shank, executive producer
at Red Light Management. “This stage show is packed with sing-a-longs.
Audiences can expect a high level of interactivity with their favorite
characters on stage.”

The Octonauts will be the official mascots for World Oceans Day, June 8
at participating zoos, aquariums and museums. In addition, many new
Octonauts products continue to roll out as part of key licensing deals
with Fisher Price, Penguin, Ncircle and Leapfrog.

The Octonauts live show consists of two acts each running about 30
minutes, plus a brief intermission. For more information, visit www.octonautsliveus.com,
