I’m traveling this week but sent my friend Kim and her daughter to a media show for the newest production at Children’s Theatre Company: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Here’s her review and pictures are provided by CTC.
If you’re looking for a heart-pounding thriller to enjoy with your child(ren), get tickets to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea! Children’s Theatre has again come up with a unique production of a classic tale. From running down ship corridors to crouching in the shadows gathering intel, be prepared to constantly move during the 45 minute show (definitely follow their suggestion to wear comfortable clothing and running shoes & leave your bags/purses at home if you can). It is recommended for children grades 3-8 and I would agree, my nine year old was fine but younger children may struggle to keep up with the fast pace and might even get a little scared during some parts.
Starting out in a holding room that is filled with scuba gear & a radio broadcast, you are soon assigned ensign status for the mission you are about to embark on with ORKA, an elite international naval force. Within minutes you find yourself aboard the ship Titan in search of the evil Captain Nemo. This mission has twists and turns that take you throughout the underwater world of the CTC building, keeping your thoughts racing as you close in. Will YOUR team be the one to finally find Nemo? Can ORKA bring down this elusive enemy? Or maybe…is Nemo not at all what she seems and will you have to be prepared to go against everything you have been told by ORKA?
