99 days of Harmony: Away We Go!

28 Apr 2016

As we get closer to Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas launch, we are counting down until the ship's debut with new blog posts about an aspect of the cruise.

Away We Go!

Entertainment on Royal Caribbean ships comes in many forms, including entertainment specifically for kids and their families.

Harmony of the Seas will feature a brand new show in the Adventure Ocean Theater called, Away We Go!, a black light puppet show created by Tony award-nominated actors and imaginative producers John Tartaglia by and Michael Shawn Lewis of Gable Grove Productions.

Away We Go! is aimed at 3- to 11-year olds and follows up Tartaglia's previous creation for Royal Caribbean, ImaginOcean. The show was originally performed on Oasis of the Seas and actually ended up being shown on land as well. It was also shown on Allure of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas and Freedom of the Seas.

The show utilizes blacklight sets and lighting as well as puppets with fabrics that work well with blacklight, giving the illusion that the puppets are floating against the black background. As such, the show is marketed as the first "glow-in-the-dark" musical.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post as we celebrate 99 days of Harmony!
