THE SHOW

ornament

ACT I

Diver Ed introduces the cast and explains the workings of the theater and the underwater video equipment.


ACT II.

Diver Ed and Mini-Ed don their dive gear. Diver Ed heads to the back of the boat where the kids are invited to push him overboard. The audience listens as Diver Ed and Captain Evil talk to each other via specialized underwater communication equipment. Being husband and wife, their banter is quite entertaining.


ACT III

Now the real action begins! Diver Ed and Mini-Ed search for adventure at the bottom of the sea. Mini-Ed loves the sea creatures, but they don’t always love him back! Diver Ed must sometimes rescue his dive buddy. And sometimes Mini-Ed must rescue Diver Ed. We never know what will happen but we know it will always be eye-opening and exciting. While on the bottom Diver Ed also collects sea creatures for the topside theater presentation.

ACT IV

Diver Ed and Mini-Ed return to the boat – and so do the creatures! The lights go on as Diver Ed takes center stage, introducing each animal in turn and using the audience children as props in his humorous demonstrations.

ACT V

Now get ready to roll up your sleeves. Diver Ed, Mini-Ed and Captain Evil assist at touch-tanks encouraging you to observe, handle, and sometimes even kiss these strange and mysterious creatures. Don’t be surprised if one ends up on your head! You will be amazed at the colors, the textures and the variety of animals which dwell beneath the waves.

ACT VI

ACT VI In our final act, we all say goodbye as the creatures are returned safely to sea. We head back to the dock and our production comes to an end.
