Under the Sea

We’re presenting a new creation presented by the City of Surrey Digital Stages

Free Online Event from May 28-June 11, 2021: Under the Sea

Go on a fun adventure! Designed with the very young in mind (age 3 – 7) Under the Sea (Sous la Mer) is a dancing storytime that explores creative movements inspired by sea creatures such as pufferfish, crabs, and sharks. Build a cozy boat with cushions and blankets and dive into your adventure. Baby crabs: can you crawl under your mama crab? Papa sharks: can you follow baby shark where-ever they go? Pufferfishes: how big and how small can you dance?

This enchanting performance filled with music and movement will get the whole family up off the couch and on their feet! This interactive show designed to engage and spark the curiosity of young minds was created by Foolish Operations’ who also created the charming world of Paper Playground, a Surrey International Children’s Festival commission. To watch Under the Sea, tune in to the Digital Stage via the City of Surrey’s YouTube channel, their website, or on Surrey Civic Theatres’ Facebook Page
