Three captains are washed up after a gigantic storm on Watson Island. Join Captain Captain, Captain No Beard, and Captain Snake as they battle it out through sword fighting, rock-paper-scissors, song and an epic rap battle to decide who becomes captain of this here island.

The Big Question

The Big Question is an energetic, zany, interactive show, exploring all things science. Our wickedly cool science team, Ada, Albert, Charles, Isaac, Marie and Rosalind will ask you, the studio audience, to choose a mystery BIG question for the day and then use their scientific knowledge to observe, ask, discover, test and try again to figure it all out.

Building Noise

Follow an ordinary work day of three construction workers, who don’t build walls or towers but instead build noise. Through body percussion, everyday objects and boom whackers, the builders build rhythm and songs to get through their day. This interactive piece concludes with the audience building one giant sound scape. To keep in line with the building theme, our set is created out of Imagination Playground. Our construction workers can work with your students to facilitate a gigantic building experience.

Simama Nami (Stand with Me)

Simama Nami is a salute to African storytelling, as it follows the journey of a rhino, chimp and dung beetle seeking refuge in a cave. Something outside the cave is upsetting the three animals and they must band together with their unique attributes to face their fears and solve their problems. At its heart, Sinama Name is a call to action. We ask our audiences to stand with us, to look after each other, each living creature and the world we live in. This is our world to share.
