Donna Drake directs the show featuring Ryan Dillon (Dorsel), Stacey Weingarten (Bubbles), James W. Wojtal, Jr. (Tank), Lara Maclean, Carole D'Agostino, Nate Begle, Jonathan Carlucci and Brian T. Carson. According to press notes ImaginOcean "follows the undersea adventures of a group of fish friends, who uncover a treasure map that leads them to learn about themselves and ultimately uncover the treasure of each other's friendship." The production takes "audiences on a one hour magical underwater journey full of surprises and special effects. The seafaring stars Dorsel, Tank and Bubbles open an enchanted world of aquatic adventures where they meet jiving jellyfish, a strong-willed seahorse and a new friend, lovable Leonard the Octopus."
