Duration 45 - 60 Mins
Cast Size 20–40+

Sea Creatures to the Rescue!

Ocean Commotion was commissioned by WWF, and has been performed throughout the world. With catchy songs and dances and rhyming script, this environmental musical encourages us all to care for our amazing oceans.
Great White Shark is looking for a school to teach his godson, Hammerhead, about the dreaded hook! He reckons they're in a better class than the hitch-hiking Barnacles and small-fry Herrings who 'ain't got no individuality'! Hammerhead is more interested in befriending a Bottlenose Dolphin, who firmly tells him they are incompatible 'You're a fish and I'm a mammal, you breathe water, I need air'. When Bottlenose is netted and taken to a dolphinarium, the Great White Shark threatens to attack her captors, but an Orca and Blue Whale advocate communication rather than force. They have learnt to understand the language of humans!

Premiered at Jackson's Lane Theatre, London

For our leavers concert this year we chose ‘Ocean Commotion’. I can’t think of a better send-off for our pupils, and hope that in their secondary school they will continue to do your fantastic musicals. J. Sinclair, Somerset
