UCM Performing Arts Series Presents “ImaginOcean” March 12-13

UCM Performing Arts Series Presents “ImaginOcean” March 12-13

The University of Central Missouri’s Performing Arts Series will bring the magic of John Tartaglia’s “ImaginOcean” to the Hendricks Hall stage Mar. 12-13.  The public performance is planned for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Ma. 13, with a school matinee scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday, Mar. 12.

Tartaglia’s unique black light puppet show is a magical undersea adventure for audiences of all ages. Tank, Bubbles and Dorsel are three best friends who happen to be fish, and they’re about to set out on a remarkable journey of discovery. Ultimately, they discover that the greatest treasure of all is friendship. Featuring music that ranges from rhythm and blues to big band, “ImaginOcean” is a live performance treat for the entire family.

Tartaglia earned his stage credentials as a Tony Award nominee for his performance in the acclaimed musical “Avenue Q.” He also appeared on Broadway in “Shrek the Musical” and in Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast, and he is known to kids and parents like for his critically acclaimed Disney Channel show, “Johnny and the Sprites.” He now has expanded his expertise into the production of this innovative stage play that opened in New York in March 2010 and began its U.S. tour in September 2011.

Tickets for the March 13 performance are available by contacting the Performing Arts Series box office in Administration 100, by calling 660-543-8888, or online at Educators seeking more information about the Mar. 12 matinee also may contact the box office.
